Mint grows like crazy and can easily take over your garden if grown in a raised bed or in ground garden. After all mint is a weed. You almost always want to grow mint in a container.

What you will need to transplant your mint into a container:

  • Container filled with potting mix
  • Mint plant
  • Water

How to transplant the mint:

  • Pour a little bit of water into the plastic container that the mint plant has been growing in.
  • In the center of the container, dig a hole that is about the same size of the container that the mint has been growing in.
  • Gently pop the mint out of the container that it’s currently in and lightly break up the block a little.
  • Insert the mint into the hole that you dug and add a little bit of water.
  • Cover up the hole with the soil and secure the mint plant.
  • Add water to the container.
