This Bonnie Sweet Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow. This variety has extra large leaves and a refreshing flavor that most cooks really like for chopping into sauces and drinks. This plant can grow quickly and spread easily, though, so be thoughtful where you site it. For this reason many people grow it in a pot. Keep pinched to encourage tender new leaves. This is a perennial for gardeners in zones 5-11. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
