I plant mint in a pot and bury the pot in the ground to help prevent unwanted spread. I have done the same for Bishop's weed and lily of the valley.

I had rosemary that grew to the size of a small bush but after the cold and snow of our 2018 winter it didn't come back. Now I have it in a dedicated raised bed for herbs but this summer the rain got it!!! I HATE climate change!!!! Never had so much wet and cold as we did this year and it is wreaking havoc on my gardens. :(

This is great advice, I will need to print it out and show my neighbor. Because her rosemary is terribly lacking in flavor, the same can be said for the thyme. All of the other herbs are doing wonderful! Especially the peppermint and my fathers rosemary is so pungent, that I have to be careful, with using it in my élixir.
