How to Propagate Mint

- Garden snips

This is such an easy way to grow a ton of fresh mint for free.
I use a recycled jar for propagating; however, you can use any jar or glass for this task.
Fill your jar or glass with water.
Then gently hold the fresh mint and cut about 4 to 5″ stem at a leaf node.
Next, to prevent the leaves from rotting, I remove all the leaves submerged in the water.
This cutting is ready to be placed in a jar of water.
Place your cut mint stems in your glass of water and sit in a sunny spot in your home. I keep mine on the kitchen counter.
Every 3 days, replace the water in your jar.
You can see in the photo below how the mint cuttings look.

Great post Kippi! Mint is one of my faves and I keep mine in containers. That was a lesson I learned years ago after adding mint clippings from a friend in my herb garden. Omgoodness, it overtook the other herbs so quickly! Thanks for sharing!! Pinning!
