View Full Version : Eratacating Mint Plants

I had mint growing on the side of my house for years, and it was just evasive as hell. Last summer/fall it started coming up in the cracks of concrete. I dug it out and it still kept coming back.
I finally purchased 2 gallons of vinigar, and poured it all over with a sprinkler can. I than covered it over with black landscaping material.
To my surprise I took of the landscaping material a few weeks ago, and guess what? No mint. :toast:

Did it kill anything besides the mint?

So I was trying to grow a mint farm by the side of my neighbors house, I would have done it by mine but that shit is evasive as hell.. Well he kept ripping it out or something but luckily it came back until that guy poured gas or some sort of plant killer and then tarped the whole side of his house...

Shit I need to go find a new place to grow my mint garden... That shit smells so sweet...

Darn. I was hoping that a new type of mint plant had been discovered.

Your hopes have come true. These mint plants are evasive while most are invasive. I am pretty sure it is a new cultivar.

Mint plants are evasive? Do they keep moving to new locations to avoid detection?

I wish you'd eradicate the rest of the mint plants in the world while you are it it. I hate mint. What's worse is when someone is chewing mint gum. If you can smell the mint, that is a not so subtle reminder that you are breating air that was just in their mouth.
