5 Herbs You Should Growing In Your Garden!

- Mint is a tricky herb. It's great in tea and for use as a repellent for a bunch of different critters including rodents but it can spread. Let me rephrase that, it can spread a lot! Mint loves to run its roots just under the soil's surface and reach out to new frontiers - like your lawn or your garden. It's easy to pull though and if you like it enough you can dry it and have herbal mint tea throughout the winter. If you don't want to go chase a running herb use a pot to hold it in its place. You can even bury the pot with about 2 inches above the soil to give the effect of a planted well contained mint. Only you will know the truth!
