Mint is a perennial with very fragrant, toothed leaves and tiny purple, pink, or white flowers. It has a fruity, aromatic taste. Mint is part of human diet ever since the Roman Empire. Aromatic chemicals and essential oils extracted from the mint leaves are often used in cosmetic and medical industry. Since it reproduces quickly and conquers new habitats easily, mint is sometimes classified as invasive species. As well as kitchen companions, mints are used as garden accents, ground covers, air fresheners, and herbal medicines.

- For outdoor plants, use a light mulch. This will help keep the soil moist and keep the leaves clean.
- To extend the harvesting season, pinch off the flowering buds as they appear.
- If planting mint in a bed using a submerged pot, be sure it's not cracked. The "runners" will find their way out and continue to spread.
- Plant the herb in super moist conditions where it won't dry out.
