Uses: For centuries, mint has been popular as a remedy for colds and certain skin allergies, along with being a delicious culinary ingredient and garnish. You can brew yourself a nice cup of mint tea to clear your head and calm your nerves. You even use fresh mint leaves to garnish your casseroles or make minty drinks like mint margarita or a mint smoothie. Spearmint can also be used to make jelly or mint sauce.
Planting: Autumn and spring are the best time to plant mint leaves. Take 6 inch pieces of mint roots and be sure to plant each root at least 12 inches apart from each other. Place than around 2 inches deep into the ground and be sure to give them a generous supply of water. Mint roots often tend to overtake plant roots around them so it is proper to keep an appropriate distance between them and other plants. The best way is to create a little brick wall around them, by inserting the bricks at least 1-2 feet deep surrounding the area of the mint root beds.
