Many herbs are easy to grow, and this is definitely true for peppermint. Since it’s a mint, it will spread and spread. If you don’t want it to take over, it’s best to tuck peppermint into a pot to curtail its wandering ways. Crush fresh leaves into water for a refreshing beverage, or add to iced tea. You can also dry leaves for flavoring dishes or beverages and making desserts like meringues, cookies, or cakes. Pick leaves frequently. Tolerates light frost.
