Growing Mint in Small Packets

I noticed that a mint runner had been caught up in neighbouring foil packets where I was growing extra Gerberas. The one that was in it had grown so well, surpassing the other mint plants in the small patch, so this is what I did.

I do not understand the term "cover containers". Please explain.

We buy various things in aluminum or plastic packets that are strong. We use up the contents by cutting one corner off the packet, right? After the packet is empty, I cut the 'top' portion off. If it is too long, I fold the 'brim' down the same way as we fold our cuffs. I make small holes in the bottom - usually 4 will do - for drainage. Then I put some compost-soil in it and start seeds or even plant small plants temporarily until they can be shifted to their destination. Am I clear, ktgrant?
