Mentha longifolia (perennial, high water need)


Soil and water: rich, moist soil. Water frequently. 

Tip for the Nomad: Plant mint on opposite side to a low water need plant like oregano and only water the mint. The low water need plant will take what is left over from mint. 

Sun: preferably a cool, moist spot in partial shade but grows also in full sun. 

Harvest: snip leaves or sprigs as needed. To harvest in quantity, cut stems to within an inch or so above the ground.
