Planting and care

After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential. Also, select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, lilies need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If its too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over.

Caring for Mentha Arvensis

  • Planting wild mint begins with choosing the right patch of garden in which to plant it.
  • This plant does not like to get dried out, so sandy soils arent the best environment in which to grow your field mint.
  • Dig a good quantity of compost into sandy soils to help keep the soil moist.
  • Make sure your proposed planting site includes full sun, or almost full sun.
  • It can tolerate light shade, but not dappled sun, like underneath a tree.
  • Like any other mint plant, the care of field mint plant isnt so much a question of keeping it healthy and alive as it is of keeping it held back.
