does it overtake the bed like normal mint does?
Belinda
01:45:37
yes it grows wild but it is deciduous so itโ€™s less of a problem aesthetically. it is a wild space, too - not a structured garden bed with plants growing together

what is the best time of year to plant the native mint?
Kate
02:06:55
Do you chill tea to have it as iced tea in summer? Do you use leftover herb tea for other purposes, eg a face wash or hair rinse?
