Answer: Corsican mint (Mentha requienii) is a groundcover for moist areas and smells of peppermint when you walk on it. The plant grows only 1/2" inch high and spreads easily. A nursery in your area carries it. Contact Yasuda Nursery, 5010 "A" St., San Diego, CA 92101. Phone (619) 262-0555.
If you've allowed chickweed to go to seed, you'll have it all over your garden. Chickweed also spreads by creeping stems that root wherever a node touches the soil. The best way to eliminate the weed is to pull it out, preferably before it flowers and goes to seed. Once you've gotten rid of the weeds, put an organic mulch around your plants to keep weeds from growing.
