One of my 2015 garden goals is to propagate more plants so that I spend less money on plants, as well as share more plants with friends and family. I decided to try my hand at one of the easiest plants to propagate - mint.
I have both spearmint (above) and peppermint (below) in my herb garden, so I decided to propagate a little bit of both.
All I had to do was dig up a small clump of the runners and roots. As long as some of the plant has some roots, it should be a cinch to propagate.
I places three to four root clippings into a small pot with potting soil and watered in. There was no need to use any kind of rooting hormone, since the mint already had roots. I then placed them on the grow shelves for a few weeks.
After four weeks, I was left with a jungle of mint to either plant around in other areas of the yard or share with friends (I'll be sharing most with friends).
Mint has been, by far, the easiest plant to propagate. Now... who wants some mint?
