Planting mint seedlings
After planting in outdoor soil should I water them right away?
Yes, water right away to eliminate large air pockets. Mint is one of the few plants that will literally take over your garden. It spreads via underground stems (stolons) and prolific seeding. Because it is difficult to remove once it is established, many gardeners choose to grow mint family plants in containers. Another option is to sink a solid (no perforations) PVC or cement pipe at least 12" into the soil and plant mint inside. Leave 2" above ground.
