Growing Mint, also Garden mint

16 May 14 Andryan (Australia - temperate climate)
Hi, I have a few pots of mint plants, and I notice since around Feb or March that my mint leaves have been very tiny and some of them even have a bare stalk closer to the ground. I water them almost everynight and they have access to plenty of sunlight. I didn't put any ferteliser on it because the last time I put ferteliser on it, they all flower and I have to pick and discard all the flowers (can I do something about the flower?). I was wondering what have I been doing wrong and what can I do to make remedy this situations? Thank you guys
