Mentha piperita

A low growing herb that will readily spread through the garden. Peppermint, compared to spearmint, has a much higher menthol content which gives it a stronger and more pronounced flavour. A magnificent accompaniment to dark chocolate and a popular herbal tea.

Sow 3mm deep in seed trays; Plant spacing at 30cm; Germination period approx. 12-16 days; Soil temperatures between 21˚C and 24˚C; Harvest time approx. 3 months; Cut leaves from the top to promote growth

Mint is a perennial herb that thrives in damp, partly shaded environments. Sow in seed trays indoors six weeks before the last frost, or outdoors after the last frost. Once established, mint will grow extensively and can take over a garden bed. In winter, mint will die down and send up new shoots in the spring.
