Has anyone tried mixing basil and mint in one Earthbox? I know they are in the same family; but I am concerned about the mint taking over the box. I usually do great using one box with four basil plants but don't use that much mint. Hoping to do done one box with three basil and one mint.

BTW, I do very well planting one Earthbox with one plant each of parsley, Italian parsley, cilantro and dill. I put the parsleys in the front towards the sun and the dill in the back so it does not shade the smaller plants.

An EB is fantastic for growing mint, but it will over run anything else planted with it
Why Google, when you have me?
