This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or part shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering Period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Originating from Europe, the leaves of this hardy perennial have a very intense flavour, which makes it excellent in teas, as well as adding a bit of oomph to sweets and drinks.

  • Garden care: When plants have finished flowering in summer, cut flowered shoots back to 5cm (2in) above the surface of the compost. Mint can be vigorous in the garden so unless you want a large clump, you can contain it by planting it in a large pot. Do keep well watered though.
