Last year when I planted and tended an herb garden as part of my Master Gardener training, a couple of extra plants "accidentally" ended up in my basket and came home with me. The Lavender Lady was added to the Entry Garden along with the rest of my lavenders. The chocolate mint was confined to a pot and placed on the other side of my sidewalk along with the Kiss-Me-Over-The-Garden-Gate that I bought at a Master Gardener sale. I don't steal ALL of my plants!
At the end of the gardening season, we were supposed to be able to bring home any of the perennials that we had grown in our herb beds with a few exceptions. One of those exceptions was the chocolate mint. My partner and I were asked to return the two mint plants which had been planted in pots which were in turn "planted" in the beds. They were going to be wintered-over and propogated in a greenhouse because the only other chocolate mint they had was in a large wooden container and wouldn't survive the winter outside in a container.
I beg to differ:
