Yeh..the French Perfume Mint that Zem gave me has spread out into the
yard...and I figured my husband would have a fit.  But he LOVES it.
He said it smelled so good when he mowed.  He wants to transplant some
of it to other areas.  Right now a family of bunnies are hiding out in
it.  I'm waiting until they grow up and then I'll disturb the mint and
move some around.

It sounds nice. Hope it takes off, you'll have that nice minty fresh
fragrance when you walk on it.
I remember at my mother's house she had planted mint in a corner of her
little border garden and it spread into the lawn, but not terribly
aggressive. Smelling it when you mowed was a little pleasant bit of a
boring job.

Well...I planted it tonight and checked out the area.  No competition
for growth.  Never mulched there, and won't.  2-3 years ago I had put
pea gravel and larger rocks there.  They just got mashed down into the
dirt over time so the soil is damp and rocky.  It gets about 4-5 hours
of morning sun.  Not much traffic there.  It gets plenty of moisture
because it is close to where I water the horses and it gets run-off.
I guess time will tell.  And yes Kitty, it's the small, flat leafed
kind.  It's the stuff that Cream deMint (sp) is made of.  The lady I
bought it from at the farmers market said it did well for her in shade
or full sun.
