Mint requires frequent harvesting to keep your plants healthy. The younger leaves have more flavor than the older ones, so it is important to keep up with frequent harvesting so you can enjoy their fresh taste.
You can harvest individual leaves or you can cut the stems one inch from the soil and have it regrow. You can harvest the same mint plant 2-3 times in one growing season. Make sure to cut the flower tops off before they bloom to ensure a healthy mint plant.
