Clever Gardening Technique

Controlling the Overpowering Mint
Mint is one aggressive herb in the garden that can become invasive and quickly crowd out other less vigorous plants. Restrict its growth by growing it in a 5-gallon plastic bucket buried in the ground. Cut the bottom of the bucket out for drainage, bury the bucket so that 2 to 3 inches of the rim remain above ground level. Then fill with soil and plant your mint. It will have its own personal space without being a nuisance.
