Anyway, I did want to start looking at some new fruit trees I purchased at the BOGI fair, but would you believe it's raining again, and is way too wet for me to venture outside. I've just washed my hair :p.
So instead I bring you mint.
I've always been hopeless at growing mint, coriander too for that matter, but this year, my mint has gone wild. I think it must be all the rain we've had, the rain that I've been complaining about for quite some time now. Anyway, mint seems to either go wild or die, the boys' nanna has mint popping up everywhere in her garden, miles away from where it was originally planted. I was digging right next to mine the other day and discovered little underground mint runners, much like a strawberry's, but hidden. I thought that was cool. Mine is planted straight in the ground, I will try and get some runners going in pots too though, and make them into gifts. I love the smell of mint, planting it somewhere where you brush past it would be a great idea too, such a heady fresh fragrance.
So having established that I know nothing about growing it, my one hint for mint, (and it's the only hint for mint I know) is if yours isn't going well, try watering it.
