|I have an apple mint growing in a small pot on my kitchen windowsill. It recently developed a very long runner, which is doing very well. The main plant looks a little weak. How can I use the runner to start a new plant?

|The easiest way is to place a pot of soil next to the plant and anchor the runner in the soil with a bent paperclip. The new mint will develop roots where it touches the moist soil. After it roots and begins to show new growth, just cut the runner from the parent plant.
