Seeking Potted Mint

f

I mean small pots of mint, growing in dirt, like the kind that are common at stores and garden centers in the spring.

Just wondering if any of you has noticed these at any of your grocery, garden, or floral stops.

Here are the places that I already know do NOT have them--Pemberton Garden Center/Market, Whole Foods, Mahoney's.

If you've spotted these anywhere, or have one to sell or donate, please let me know.

many thanks!

    It's a little early. Heck Home Depot has it on into spring.

      Every place has it then. I need it now, though--that's why I posted a request instead of just waiting for spring.

      I have the same question. I'd love to buy some potted herb plants now. I guess I could start from seed and buy some gro lights....

        You might save some growing time by purchasing fresh herbs at some place like Russo's, cutting the ends off just a bit, dipping them in some rooting powder, and potting them up in some sterile potting mix.
