I love Spearmint…the fragrance, the taste of the tea. What seems a bane to some gardeners: the invasive spreading of the plant, is to me a blessing. Here is a repeat of some of the reasons why I feel this way.
It’s true, if you don’t contain spearmint in some way it will spread everywhere. The fact is though, I am very happy mine has taken over portions of my yard andgarden. I love spearmint tea. Pick off a bit of the stem with a few leaves intact, cover with boiling water, add a dab of honey, and you have a soothing, fragrant, delightful and vitamin packed cup of tea. I’m a cheerleader for spearmint in the garden: “Go, spearmint, go. Rah! Rah! Rah!”
