The Mojito mint cuttings I put in water back on May 28th have all rooted! Woohoo!
The roots looked eerie in the water of their popsicle-stick tray:
Time to pot them up and spread the joy of the Mojito mint! Also, I should divide the 1-gallon pot of Mojito mint into another pot as it has really bushed out.
I must admit that I’ve kind of gone mint crazy this year and have been searching for new and exciting plants. Two so far have made it into my garden this year: Fruit Sensations and a mystery mint.
I bought the Fruit Sensations mint from Richter’s last weekend:
And the mystery mint came home with me when I was weeding Ottawa Hortiphilia’s flower and veggie beds while she’s been on holiday. She let me sneak a few cuttings of mint from her garden, a super-stong mint:
Woo! It’s way potent and quite tall for a mint. It’ll be perfect for candying and putting in my iced tea.
