What you need:
  • Mint plant
  • 5 gallon pot
  • Shovel
The first step in planting mint is to select a pot to plant in. A two gallon pot is generally sufficient for mint. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the pot. Fill the pot with soil from the hole.

Place the pot into the hole. Make sure the rim of the pot is just below the soil line.

Water thoroughly. The pot will prevent the plant from spreading into the rest of your garden.
