Growing Tips For Mint Plants

 

If you often drink mint tea or use mint in your recipes, consider growing your own mint plants instead of always buying a plant or tea bag at the supermarket. There's really nothing difficult to it. Below there is a "mint growing"-guide explaining all the steps you need to follow.

 

Preliminary Advice

 

To have more fresh mint leaves, you can grow several plants at a time but don't take leaves for your mint tea before your plants have grown large enough. Otherwise, you will quickly run out of mint leaves.
