Ginger mint plants are usually sterile and don’t set seeds, but you can propagate the plant by taking softwood cuttings or rhizomes from an existing plant. These plants prefer moist, rich soil and full sun or partial shade. Ginger mint is suitable for growing in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 through 9. Once established, ginger mint spreads by runners, and like most types of mint, may become aggressive. If this is a concern, plant ginger mint herbs in pots to reign in rampant growth. You can also grow ginger mint indoors.

Like all types of mint, ginger mint herbs are high in fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Dried mint is higher in nutrition than fresh mint, but both are delicious in teas and for flavoring a variety of dishes. Fresh ginger mint herbs make delicious jams, jellies, and sauces.
