Wonderful Mint: How To Care For & Plant This Fragrant Herb. youtube

Some species are more invasive than others.

Even with the less invasive mints, care should be taken when mixing any mint with any other plants, lest the mint take over.

To control mints in an open environment, they should be planted in deep, bottomless containers sunk in the ground, or planted above ground in tubs and barrels.

They are supposed to make good companion plants, repelling pesty insects and attracting beneficial ones.

They are susceptible to whitefly and aphids.

Mice… well, you may like mice, but certainly not when they’re a pest.

And they don’t like mint either!


So, you can get rid of them without actually harming them, isn’t that good news? Prepare a well-concentrated mint tea.

Store it in a spray bottle then spray every corner of your house, particularly the door corners and the window rims.

Insects just can’t stand the smell. So now you can naturally keep bugs and rodents away, and have a wonderful minty aroma at home. Isn’t that nice?

Mediterranean Gardening: A Waterwise Approach.SaveSaveSave


Gardening in harmony with a Mediterranean climate means taking advantage of winter rain and allowing the garden to rest over hot summers.

In this beautifully illustrated, practical handbook, Heidi Gildemeister provides both novice and experienced gardeners with a comprehensive guide for waterwise gardening.

You will find over one thousand drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants chosen both for their beauty and for their easygoing ways.

Well indexed with common and botanical names, “Mediterranean Gardening” will be indispensable not only for gardeners in California, the Mediterranean basin, and Mediterranean climate areas in South America, Australia, and Africa, but for anyone living in a region that experiences drought.

Gildemeister explains how drought-tolerant plants that are suitably matched with a site and carefully planted and mulched can live on winter rain and, once established, do not need additional summer water – as in nature.

The Plant Selection lists over one thousand plants from nearly five hundred genera, including their preferred growing conditions, propagation, best use, and maintenance.


Guidelines in eight steps describe the planning of waterwise gardens, such as for the establishment of dappled shade to conserve precious soil moisture.

Successful alternatives to the water-intensive lawn offer attractive design ideas. “Mediterranean Gardening” offers a wealth of information: ‘easy’ plants for the beginner, new choices for the garden architect, and for botanists the latest findings on minimum temperatures plants can endure.

An extensive bibliography covering drought tolerance and a list of useful addresses make this book as helpful to people converting to water-, labor-, and ecology-conscious gardening as to those starting from scratch.
