When brushed past, the glorious scent of ginger/apple on the leaves of Ginger Mint is delicious. The distinctive splashes of gold/orange on the leaves look almost like tiger stripes and in summer, tiny lilac flowers are in abundance on the red stems. Mints are an excellent source of nectar for bees and other beneficial insects. The leaves can be steeped in boiling water to make a refreshing tea and the flowers used to garnish salads and cold summer drinks.

Our herb plugs are securely rooted, healthy plugs that would benefit from being grown on in 9/10cm pots for a few weeks before planting out in herb gardens, containers or hanging baskets. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.5 – 3cm deep x 3.2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm – 5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Ginger mint, like other mints, is best grown in a pot or tub where the roots can be contained.
Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost.
If you have a designated herb bed, you can sink a bucket/pot into the ground and this will help to keep the invasive roots.
