So my mint in my bog is exploding since I built the bog maybe in June?? It is flowing over the sides of the bog now and starting to grow thru the fence around the bog. Should I trim it now or wait until spring and thin the heard then? I thought about adding some mint to a few spots in the bog that don't have much for cover, but I'm afraid it will choke out everything else...What to do?

I bought a 6" pot last month and put it in a windowbox (36"x12") that I have pond water flowing thru. It has filled the entire box and is hanging out into the pond. Either the koi don't like it or it's growing too fast for them to make a difference.

Trim, yank, toss or leave it be. I have pulled a bunch of mine, it nicely regrows. You can't harm the stuff lol

Real easy to pull though, shallow roots, comes right up.
