Spearmint in my flower garden
I planted spearmint in my garden hoping to deter rabbits. That worked, but now it's taking over everywhere. I had no idea it would be so invasive. Three questions: Can I pull it up? Can I cut it down/back? If I plant it around the base of my trees (where I've never been able to grow anything), and it spreads into the yard, will the cuttings from being mowed take root wherever they land in the yard? I'm afraid I made a HUGE mistake?
