More Details

We can never have enough mint, and so trialled lots of new ones last year.

The 'Basil' variety - like basil but so much easier to grow in spring and autumn as well as summer, 'Eau de Cologne' for your bath, 'Moroccan' for teas, potatoes and sauce and 'Chocolate peppermint' for puddings. Delicious.

  • Eau de Cologne Mint

  • Basil Mint
  • Chocolate Peppermint

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Mint is a vigorous plant that will spread all over the place if planted straight into the ground. This is why it is a good idea to plant it in a large pot filled with multi-purpose compost that can be placed in a prominent place to make picking easy. Give plants plenty of water, especially during hot, dry weather.
Care Tips Perfect for containers. If it gets woody, prune it back hard.
Storing Use immediately or store in a plastic bag in the fridge for a couple of days.
Harvesting May - October. The flavour is strongest just before flowering in late summer.

Three growing well but the basil mint appears to have been affected by something, brown discoloration on leaves so have cut right back and hope it will grow through ok.
