Martha Stewart Explains The Best Spot To Plant Mint
Known for its rapid growth, mint can quickly overtake other plants. That's why Martha Stewart recommends planting mint in a container to prevent it from hindering other plants.
Doing so stops it from spreading uncontrollably and dominating other plants in your garden. You can keep the pot on its own, or put it in the ground with the rest of your garden.
If you opt for the latter, use a pot that is at least 5 inches tall and has a drainage hole. When burying the container, ensure only an inch or so is above the soil line.
