Description

A large mint plant. Cultivated at the Windmill Community Gardens using chemical free methods. Mint is a perennial herb grown for its leaves. They are wonderful infused in hot water to make a refreshing tea, chopped and added to many dishes, or used to make mint sauce (a classic addition to roast lamb). How to grow and care for your mint plant. Give plants plenty of water, especially during hot, dry weather. When plants have finished flowering in summer, cut flowered shoots back to 5cm (2in) above the surface of the compost. Avoid growing different varieties of mint close together, whether in pots or the ground, as they can lose their individual scent and flavour. When growing in pots, rejuvenate congested clumps by upturning the container, removing the rootball and splitting it in half. Repot a portion in the same container using fresh compost.
