You can't have a herb garden without mint! But as all mints keep it in a pot otherwise it will take over the whole world! And they like the water a LOT! It will creep out of the drainage holes and try to escape into the garden looking for more water if you aren't careful!


My variety has lowish twisty branches that tend to run along the ground. Roundish leaves too.


When it gets too rangy or there's too many caterpillars eating it I just hack it all back to ground level. Within a few weeks you have a crop again so it's no dramas.
