    SPEARMINT | PLANTING: Grow in full sun - partial shade. WATERING: Prefers moist, fertile soil. USES: Strong flavor and fragrance that is released with simple bruising. It’s the best mint variety for hot & cold drinks. Toss bruised leaves into ice water for a refreshing summer drink or add to iced or sweet tea. Spearmint is favored for flavoring beverages such as mojito. Planted this @ the end of the planter farthest from the lavender & put lime mint (used for tea & key lime pie) in the middle.

To prepare the traditional Moroccan tea, keep the following essentials in mind. The tea must be green, with a mild flavor. The mint must be fresh (absolutely not dried), and it must be spearmint. The tea is traditionally very sweet; there is always sugar in the bottom of the glasses in Morocco. The tea should be served in small glasses with several fresh mint sprigs in each glass.

Mint planted in barrels - Prevent mint plants from completely taking over the garden by planting in half-barrels or containers.

Our mint went crazy and took over the blackberries and the strawberries.

Mint - Spearmint, peppermint, and chocolate mint are just a few of the many mint varieties available. All are rapid spreaders, making them suitable as groundcovers in confined areas, such as a parking strip or an area bounded by a foundation and sidewalk. Or grow it in a container to prevent it overtaking garden neighbors. Mint prefers partial shade but tolerates full sun
