First time Mint Grower
I am a first time herb grower that recently moved into a beautiful little apartment in Montreal, Canada that would like to take advantage of the sun here and grow some fresh mint for Mojitos this summer.
My question is relating to the planter; I found a nice and big (LONG) planter that I am going to hang from my balcony, but it's been painted. Is it a bad idea for me to use this previously painted box for growing mint? is there a risk of the paint affecting the mint or being poisonous?
