quick question about mint

I got 40+ mint plants I got 5 of each likes of pineapple lime lavender and some more they are just little plugs maybe two inch big.

I also know about the infections they can get rust mildew etc..

The question is this, can I take 2/3 of them up to some remote place and plant them just incase the other get infected.

You could do that, or just pot up some and keep them in a different part of the yard.

I think some mints are more susceptible to rust than others. I overwatered my spearmint when I first got it and it had rust, but bounced back when I let it dry out and removed the affected leaves

40 mint plants... the mind boggles... :-)
Two of each would have been good to start with and once established would be EASY to propagate from division -- or stem or root cuttings!
I think before long you will have more mint than you know what to do with. Mints are like the Everready bunny of the herb world! LOL

RE: quick question about mint

There was only one place I could buy yhem from and they would not allow me to buy 1 at a time or buy one of each in a pack of 5 it was take 5 of one or nothing I tried to sell them and even give them away but no so I went and planted 30 out of the way
