    Not difficult at all. My family use to work the peppermint fields in Oregon. I have traveled all over the world and we grew it in several places. They are annual and can be planted among your flowers in flowerbeds, or in pots, or fields. They love the sun.

      Thank you. I was hoping it would be simple to care for. I get the sun all day long. Can I plant it now in the spring? I live within Los Angeles County.

    Shouldn't be hard, they grow like a weed. I live in Fl an plant Chocolate Mint plant, tastes just like peppermint patties! I grow it in containers, along with, basil, dill, rosemary and thyme....sounds like a song I know😋

      I know the song well.  But you forgot the sage. I currently have chocolate sage, mint and rosemary. But I just started so I’m in the baby stage. Thank you for your help.

    there are different kinds but they all grow like weeds so put in a place and surround it so the roots cant go on. I leave it in pots and put in the pot in the grown or keep them separated using a large oval container. At one point they took over my Veg garden.. AT my new House it is separated, they love water. I live in Florida and we do have period of drought, so need to look out for that, They are great in drinks too.
