    Yes, it is recommended to always keep mint in a pot. It is important to protect it from the very cold temperatures. Also, make sure the pot can drain well and stays moist.

    Mint SHOULD be kept in pots -- or it will take over your garden beds!

    Mint is said to repel mosquitoes so it's a great herb to keep outside a door or window :)

    Montana, I have had mint for 20 years or more, and yes it will spread like crazy. I use round up to keep it where I want it. The cold does not seem to bother it at all. It dies in the fall after frost, but comes back vigorously in the spring. Makes GREAT mint julips.

      Thank you for your answer. If it thrives in Montana should do fine in Delaware.
