Select a container which is big enough to accommodate the size of the stevia and mint you’re planting. Roots require an abundance of room to grow; therefore, the plant possesses a solid base.
Fill up the container’s bottom with a couple of inches of stones in order for the soil to have the ability to drain away excessive water. It’ll prevent the liquid from overpowering its roots.
Fill up the container the remainder of the way using potting soil. It’s is lighter than top soil, as well as is formulated in order to drain well inside containers.
Sprinkle the fertilizer on the top 2” of potting soil and slightly work in using your hands. Potting soil requires a fertilizer as it doesn’t possess the nutrients of earth-bound soil.

Plant the stevia and mint by lightly breaking apart the plant’s roots and pushing the soil that surrounds them for stability.
Put the container within a sunny area, water as necessary and watch your plants grow! Soon you’ll be appreciating fresh mint tea!
