    help with garden

    this is long winded but I don't want to chance it
    so here are the questions

    I plan on planting 2 kinds of mint in a raised bed with other herbs and here this issue im having
    my house along the 1 side and half of the other side has spearmint growing like mad crazy that came with the house
    I have 2 mints I like to put in the bed, one is chocolate mint and the other is sweet mint
    ants roaches and other bugs hate spearmint so I don't want to lose those but would they cross breed with my other 2 mints if they are all within less then 6 feet from each other?

    I know parsley and cilantro cant be near each other due to they cross breeding because they are from the apiaceae family (note I not sure if apiaceae spelled correctly) so how far apart I need to keep them?

    and I planting 2 thornless blackberry bushes in the fall, but when is the best time in fall? I was told you should plant all trees and bushes in the fall but they never said when

    sorry if im a wee harder to understand then normal due to a nasty headache

    Hmm, I have a mint plant, and didn't think of different breeds. I am following.

    Same, I've planted mint before and cross-breeding never once occurred to me!
    "Every personís life is theirs by right. An individualís life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a manís throat and dictate how he must live his life."

    I've had both spearmint and peppermint, . . . both died out, . . . wish I could get some more.

    As for fall planting, . . . mom always tried to do that, . . . in the belief that the plants did a little bit of growing, . . . spreading out in the later fall, . . . gave them the big shot in spring at blossoming and blooming big time.

    I'll be doing the same with some Colorado Blues this fall, . . . for the same reason. Probably in the middle of Oct, . . . latest would be early November.

    May God bless,
    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you can read in English, . . . thank a veteran.
