Last year I planted one mint plant in my SFG. This spring I had to totally rip it out of the whole bed. Next time I know to just plant in a single pot to keep it under control.

What other plants are so invasive that I need to avoid in my SFG?

Not as invasive as mint, but I keep my chives in a separate pot. And I'm reading that borage self seeds enough to keep it in a pot beside the tomatos.

My list of things to plant only when corralled are Borage, ANYTHING in the mint family including Lemon Balm, and bronze fennel.
We plant fennel in the back of our perennial beds to encourage butterflies.
Not only does the Lemon balm "travel" some underground, it reseeds like crazy.

Just a little point about fennel, it apparently doesn't play well with others either.
In reading the companion charts given earlier, it seems fennel is bad for everything..... enemy..

Fighting queen anne's lace out in the back pasture. Rick calls it queen anne's a_s. Mow over it and it stands right up again, we hate it. And wild chives/onions omg, the llamas eat it and come up to us with onion breath. Llama humor I guess.
