What kind of soil does Mint grow best in? When I lived in Pennsylvania, it grew SO WELL, we couldn't kill it when we tried. But in Minnesota, I'm having a tough time trying to keep it for one season! Any suggestions are welcome! (I know the snow has to melt first!!HA!)

Here's our mint growing article but it says "moderately rich, moist, slightly acidic soil".

I'm in Connecticut and it definitely grows like weeds here (literally, all around my deck) so I haven't done too much personal research into it.

A mixture of bagged compost and soil will ensure a huge crop of Mint.
I have to keep it under control as it grows so fast.
