Flowering Mint Plant

So what does it mean when your mint plant starts to flower? Well, it's going to produce seeds! Then the seeds get thrown on the ground and you get more mint plants! It is wise to plant mints in containers or contain them by sinking barriers about a foot in the ground because they are quite invasive. The top picture is a mint plant that I purchased in the garden store and it's sending some runners which will grow into another plant. The bottom picture is a mint that I started from seeds and it's about a couple of month's old. I just transferred them in pots . I'm not sure what kind of mints these are as there are a lot of kind of mints.
