HELP mint- what pot to plant in?
I am trying companion planting and would like to plant mint. But after reading various threads I am having second thoughts. I was going to plant one mint plant per plastic drinking cup (8oz). Will this keep it from taking over. Do I need really large pots. If I keep trimming it will it be okay? My garden is very large and I am not able to afford large pots for all the mint companions I need.
Second- I cannot find information on spacing. For example: Tomato: I have 19 foot rows. I want to plant mint, basil, parsely, chives. also bee balm, and borage (these two I only want a few plants per row) How should I space things. Here is what I have planned so far:
should I interplant the basil, parsely, and chives
or plant the other three in rows in front of the marigolds?
please help I really need some advice. I never get a great yield and I am hoping to have a great garden this year.
