Description

There is nothing quite like going out to your garden and picking your own freshly grown herbs to use in your dinner or to put into a summer drink.

Mint leaves are used for the traditional mint sauce to go with delicious roasted lamb or made into a mint tea. Mint is particularly tasty for adding to the water when boiling new potatoes such as Jersey Royals.Yummy! Once established though, the roots can be invasive so plant out with care or alternatively, plant into pots (which would be ideal for your patio). Mint can grow to a height of about 60cm (24")
