A clever way to grow mint in a garden

My father in law has done this really well. Cut the bottom out of a large (12") pot and then plant it as normal. As long as the pot goes about ten inches into the soil the roots aren't breaking out.

But what's better is the way the mint responds. It gets all the moisture of the garden bed, but mint won't put on a heap of leaf until its runners hit some resistance. And as you can see, it loves it.

I won't show you my scrappy stringy stuff that's unrestrained in my garden bed.
