種植薄荷 Planting Mint

多年生草本;夏天可能會枯萎,如果熬過夏天,就可以在秋天開始時繼續茂盛生長
肥料;入春秋時,可加一點氮肥。
易繁殖;分株、扦插與播種都可,分株或扦插,都非常方便,而且易成功。
注意夏天常有蟲害,因為薄荷有地下走莖,最好有獨立花盆或區域種植。

A perennial herb (Summer may wither, and if the mint lives in the summer, it can continue to flourish at the beginning of the fall.)
Fertilizer: add a little nitrogen fertilizer when entering the spring and autumn.
Easy to breed: ramets, pruning, and sowing, which are very convenient to grow and easy to succeed.
Note: There are often pests in the summer. Because mint roots tend to grow sidewards, better to grow in independent flower pots or areas.
