We always recommend planting mint in a container so that it does not take over your garden. A long, shallow container, like the color bowls below, makes a perfect home for these rampant runner rogues. And, while beneficial insects love mint flowers, some mints make seeds that can sprout and come up without you noticing, so keep an eye on those flowers!

Tightly pack a glass jar with mint and cover with brandy. After it stands for 2 to 3 weeks, strain it through a muslin bag. Take this brandy and add it to fresh herbs and more brandy and keep repeating until you have enough to use and the taste suits.
Mint flowers are also very useful and any of these mints, except Pennyroyal, would make nice additions to our Edible Flower Herb Garden Six Pack.
