Thanks Mose.

No, its at the bible school - the garden was behind the 'gold trailer'...so i don't know if dennis has completely reseeded the place with grass or what. If there is still rhubarb back there, that's about where it would be. And i'm sure it would be just fine for you to help yourself.

I don't know Amy. I haven't grown tea except the attempted chocolate mint. My MIL has mint, or "meadow tea" they call it, and she gives me as much as I want, but I thought I'd like to try some other stuff. Mose, do you think anyone would care if I'd help myself to a few clumps? Is it at the apartments? What a bummer to get stuff going and then have to leave. Thanks for all your help, it's nice to know it's actually a possibility. I might try checking some local stores and greenhouses for it.

In my experience, the chocolate mint is harder to grow. I have a patch and half of it dies off each winter... versis the balsam tea which would take over everything after a while. What am I doing wrong?

Did you know that you can break off a stalk/branch and just stick it in soil and within a week it will be rooted? I haven't tried it myself, but I'm planning on it this year. =)

Don't know if there's anything still alive over at the bible school, but dad had about half a dozen kinds of mint and such growing over there before they moved.

My sister has grown it--I think she bought it locally rather than ordering it from a catalog. She was impressed with it. She really likes drinking tea and said it made wonderful tea. I have never tasted it myself, but it smelled good!!

Does anyone grow chocolate mint? I ordered a plant last year from a catalog and of course it died so I was wondering if anyone has had success with it and where they got it? The catalog said it tastes like a mint patty, mmm. Would love to get some going this year.
