Q.Do I Need to Put a Stake in the Ground to Attach the Mint Plant To?

kpashia added on April 9, 2011 | Answered

I am new to gardening and I have planted some mint, it is growing horizontally. I have read on some places that it is supposed to grow 8 inches tall. Should I attach it to a stake, or be patient and wait for it to root? I planted it 5 days ago. It has doubled in size, but not vertically!

There are numerous types of mint plants, so it growing characteristic depends largely on the variety you are growing.
