Live Peppermint Grown Year Round in Calgary, AB

Mint Close Up

Live Peppermint is one of the most versatile herbs.  It can be used in a range of teas, cocktails, salads or desserts.  When paired with lemon balm in a planter it can make for a potent natural insect repellent.

As with most mints, peppermint has an aggressive root system that if left unchecked, can quickly take over your garden.  So if you are going to plant mint in your garden, be sure to keep the root system contained in a pot so you can manage the plants spread.

Harvesting Your Live Peppermint Plant

Cutting Mint

Step 1: When you go to trim your mint plant, consider what size you want your plant to be. Shape the mint in a way that grew in the circumference of your pot rather than spilling out of the pot.

Step 2: With the help of scissors, cut around one-third of the length at the tip of every stem. Mint is a quick-growing herb, so don’t be frightened of the pruning, your plant will grow again.  In the event that stems are growing out from the pot, simply cut these sprigs off at the base of the plant.

Step 3: Remove the cut sprigs away from the plant and enjoy using in your kitchen.  Place the cut plant back in a sunny location and it will be ready to cut again in a few weeks time.
