Q.

Can peppermint plants continue in water only inside for a season?

Our outside temperature is already dropping below 32 degrees. Hoping to save my outdoor peppermint plants by bringing them inside and transplant from Miracle Grow blended soil into water jars for the winter season. How?

I think I would just leave them in the pots, put them in a nice sunny spot indoors, and don't water too much. Of course, you can root a few cuttings in water if you want. Peppermint is also winter hardy outdoors to zone 3, possibly even lower. So you can grow it outside in the ground if you want in the future. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/mint/growing-mint-indoors.htm
