YouTube: How to Revitalize Your Mint Pot – Don’t Replace It, Refresh It!

Every year in winter our mint pot starts to looks sad, dormant and, let’s face it, dead. But if you look closely there is evidence that it is still alive. White roots and tiny sprouts of new mint leaves among the vast desert of barren soil are clues that the mint pot isn’t dead, it just needs refreshing.

See, mint likes to send out a lot of roots. And those roots clog up the pot, circling endlessly until there’s no room to grow. Our latest video shows you how to revitalize your mint pot to bring it back to life.
