Hi - we are in a temperate climate with high rainfall in winter and not much in the way of frost. We have had a beautiful large pot of mint thriving over summer and as it ended have cut it back hard. If I tuck the pot out of sight for winter will it come away again in Spring or am I better to pull it out and replant in Spring? Thanks : )

Read the notes here it tells you what to do. Grow indoors or outside, will die back in winter, shoot away again in spring. Likes a bit shade etc.
