Plant Profile: Mint

Mint is one of the most versatile herbs in the garden. It can be used it both sweet and savoury culinary dishes (and cocktails too!).

Profile-MintIt’s ideal to keep mint growing in a pot, rather than sowing in the garden, as it’s a very ‘friendly’ herb and tends to spread around quite widely… unless you want oodles and oodles of mint everywhere.

Sow Mint directly into a pot filled with Tomato & Herb Potting Mix with a shallow layer of Seed & Cutting Mix on top. This gives your seeds a gentle start, where they can then grow through to the main potting mix, without the need for transplanting.

Part shade is ideal for mint so the leaves don’t burn.

Mint loves regular watering, but well drained soil. Keep it moist, but not wet.
