Plant Spearmint

If you want only one herb in your kitchen garden, plant spearmint.

Spearmint may just be the easiest herb to grow; all it needs is average soil, sunshine and water.

Once established, it's hard to kill and, like many herbs, needs help staying contained.

I have spearmint planted where I can easily reach it.

Spearmint makes a great garnish and accent, especially for fruit dishes. It's such a versatile herb, I also use it in the garden when I need a bald spot filled in.
