it depends on how high the mower was set. if there are still axils, you will probably get new lateral branches.

it will take more than a lawn mower to kill mints. you might want to grow your mints in pots.

Basil needs trimmed back once in awhile, just not brutally. How about stakes so he can run into those?

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
