Growing Mint with Terrachi Clay Pots – A Fun Activity for Children
Growing your own fresh herbs is one of the most rewarding activities and of course, mint is one of the easiest and most versatile herbs to grow. Whether you are an experienced gardener or just starting out, Terracchi Clay is here to help you get the most out of your mint grow.
There are a wide range of flavours of mint to choose from and most come in easy-to-plant pots and are available in spring. To get the most flavour, invest in pots made from terracotta clay, because the clay allows extra moisture to evaporate, which helps keep the plant healthy and flavourful.
When it comes to taking care of your mint, water regularly and trim the flowering shoots back to two inches. You can also rejuvenate your mint by uprooting the pots and splitting the rootball as well as providing fresh, multi-purpose compost.
At the same time, mint is notorious for readily taking over neighbouring pots and garden trellises. So make sure to keep varieties of mint separate from each other if planted in the same container or garden.
Most importantly, embrace the reward of growing your own fresh herbs and veggies. It’s funny to think that the same leaves that provide the perfect seasoning for your dishes, could have come from a plant you nurtured yourself. And why not make it a family activity by involving the children? Employing their inner green thumbs is sure to make your plant-growing experience even more fun and enjoyable.
Whether it’s chopped and added to dishes, used to make mint sauce, or infused in hot water, your freshly-grown mint will add a wonderfully refreshing flavour to any meal. So get growing with Terracchi Clay and start making your meals even more delicious today!
