From a refreshing tea to a classic sauce for roast lamb and new potatoes, mint is one of the most useful culinary herbs. It’s also one of the best herbs for attracting beneficial insects into the garden, such as hoverflies, lacewings and butterflies. There are many different varieties of mint to choose from with leaves that smell completely different – This collection contains some of our favourites!
You'll receive 6 potted plants, 1 each of Indian Mint, Garden Mint, Chocolate Mint and Basil Mint and 2 plants of Peppermint.
English Peppermint - Perfect for teas, salads and decorating, with refreshing flavour.
Indian Mint - Not a true mint, perfect for hanging baskets with a strong trailing habit, aromatic, mint scented foliage and long lasting white flowers.
Chocolate Mint - As chocolatey, minty and scrumptious as it sounds. Crush fresh leaves into water for a refreshing drink, or dry leaves for flavouring desserts, like ice cream or cakes.
Basil Mint - The distinctive flavour of this herb works well with tomatoes, as well as adding a bit of zing to sliced melon or salads. It can also be used to make pesto and is delicious when used with balsamic vinegar and oils.
Garden Mint - The traditional garden mint, full of flavour and superb for making mint sauce or adding to new potatoes when cooking.
