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

    If you love making mint tea, then this is one of the best varieties to choose. You can also use it however to flavour salads, potatoes, peas, lamb - or make mojitos! Fast and easy to grow, it will soon spread to form a good-sized clump.

  • 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 it well watered though.
