Can be used for peppermint tea and for flavouring ice cream and drinks.
Very pretty pale purple flowers in summer which are very attractive to pollinators.
If grown in a pot mint is prone to becoming pot bound quite quickly. Check in spring and if roots have run out of space, remove the whole plant from the pot, divide into two and replant each half with fresh soil in its own pot.
Peat-free, pesticide-free, plastic-free.
All plants are sent to you in an eco-friendly cardboard POSIpot or fibre pot, (made from wood pulp), together with a wooden ID label and care instructions. In both cases these can be planted straight into the ground in the pot which will biodegrade.
