I am looking to put in a tea garden for a non-profit and need more plants "herbs" that can be used for making tea's.
I have....

Apple Mint
Chocolate Mint
Want other mints that will grow well in zone 5 (VT) without dieing after a season. Will trade what I have for what you have but want to set a size standard for trade as the last trade I did I gave a huge plant and in return got a small root! Will also trade for other tea herbs as well.

I have alot of apple mint. If you pay me postage, I will be happy to send you the apple mint, and two other mints that I grow but I do not know their names. Can take a picture of them and let you see what they look like if you want them as well.

I've got spearmint I'd be happy to dig up some rhizomes of. Also a fun Southeast native mint called mint Charlie (Clinopodium brownei), which is great for strong mint teas, but would have to be brought inside for the winter (it's pretty easy to keep alive inside, though). The latter is great for containers without drainage or a wet part of the garden because you can't over-water it.

Would be interested in your chocolate mint for my spearmint, and/or any other herbs you might have (I have apple mint already) for the mint Charlie. I wouldn't ask for large starts of anything�"as I'm sure you know, once you have a bit of mint, you'll quickly have a TON of mint�"but I'll happily offer as many roots as I can dig up of the spearmint, and a reasonable portion of the Charlie (the latter would be cuttings rather than rhizomes, as it's not a rhizomatous like Mentha species�"the cuttings are supremely easy to root, just stick the stems into wet dirt and give it awhile).

Shoot me an email at if you're interested. :)
