Lush and green, this Artichoke & Mint Container Garden design features a center-of-attention artichoke surrounded by your favorite kind of mint (think sweet mint, spearmint, peppermint, even chocolate mint). Imagine how many appetizers and beverages you can fashion around those plants! You only need two mint plants—mint grows and spreads fast, so it’ll fill the area around the artichoke in no time. Plant this design in a large metal tub, whiskey barrel, or other 24-inch (or larger) container, and don’t forget holes for drainage.
For excellent results, fill the container with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® All Purpose Container Mix, which is the ideal weight and texture for container growing. Feed plants with Miracle-Gro® Performance Organics® Edibles Plant Nutrition Granules to ensure they get all the nutrition they need.
