Q.After Removing An Overgrown Mint Plant From My Planter Box, Can I Use The Soil Even If It Is Full Of Fine Roots From The Mint Plan

t? Just wondering if these fine roots will eventually grow back and mint plants will begin sprouting. I would like to grow wildflowers from seeds in the planter box.

That's quite the possibility. Mint can become a little invasive and any runners left behind will grow back. I would make sure to get what you can out of the soil before reusing it.
