Ginger Mint: Mentha x gracilis. Hardy Perennial. (3xGarden Ready Plants Supplied)
Mint plants are one of the most versatile and useful plants around! They are an invaluable cookery ingredient that will add panache to any dish. Very easy to grow and making themselves at home in both full shade (even on a North facing wall) or full sun with very little maintenance required even beginner gardeners will have no problems growing them. They are also a fantastic way to introduce children to growing and gardening. Mints look stunning planted in hanging baskets, tubs, patios and tubs where their cascading habit creates a wonderful effect.
Wonderful aromas will entrance any visitors to your garden, including the inquisitive wildlife your mint will attract.
When you harvest your fresh mint, simply snip the top leaves first because this will encourage the plant to shoot from the base and this will also help to keep your Mints looking their best!
