I'm pleased to report that it's doing fine...more the fine.
I prune it, it grows back, the caterpillars devour it, I prune off the dead bits and it grows back again...and again...and again. Out of everything that I've grown on my balcony the mint is a keeper, as is my rosemary. If you're having trouble getting your gardening started then mint is the way to go (just make sure you plant it in a pot on its own as it has a massive root system that will strangle everything that it's planted with).
After the last pruning I decided to use some of the mint in a homemade potato salad that we had on Christmas Eve with prawns. Yum!
Happy gardening, Miss Piggy xoxo
