Our experience

We have one small-medium pot of mint with half a dozen stalks, dug up from growing wild near Tharwa, but clearly common Australian house mint washed down from Tharwa houses towards the Murrumbidgee River. It is rather heavy, clay-ey soil, and stuggling a bit. Will try repotting it and nurturing also in shadier spot for summer. It died during hot weather during the subsequent summer. Need to start again.

Mint releases the pleasant fragrance more so on contact and grows vigorously.

Ideally perhaps might be several varieties of mint on S-side (S-hemisphere) in pots, underneath espaliered everygreen fruit trees.

That way we would brush up against it.


  • Semi-fertile soil in a partial shade location [1] [2]


  • Moist but not waterlogged
  • Mulch
  • Keep roots cool

Short-term goals

  • Re-pot existing mint
  • Acquire other varieties of mints in pots
