Mint or Chocolate Mint?    (Posted Mon, Mar 28 '11 at 09:36 UTC)

So, I am currently growing Mint and Chocolate Mint. They are, both at the moment,
in 4inc containers. I have the perfect place in my backyard to put them so then can
flourish and be contained. PROBLEM: I don't know which one to transplant to that
lovely corner. The mint is gorgeous and wild looking but it is not has fragrant as
I thought it would be. The chocolate mint is SO fragrant but would it make a good
tea when dried? I was hoping someone could give me a lovely opinion or feedback.
I know it's not a big problem but I am at such a standstill!

I love chocolate mint and grow mostly that. I will say that I had it die out once, something that is the opposite of what mint usually does.
It makes a lovely tea.

Fyi when planting any mint keep in mind it will grow like crazy. I am going to replant mine in hallow bottom 5 gallon bucket to control its growth.

Growing chocolate mint in containers is easy.
I use the leaves in dishes and drinks for added flavor.
It is easy way to always have a fresh supply of the chocolate herb plant.

Definitely try chocolate mint but perhaps do as other guys say. Make sure you have the spot guarded. Mint do tend to grow like crazy and soon you may face it everywhere around your garden. Even in the spots you'd never expect anything grow :)
