Spearmint (mentha spicata) - 5 Plug Plants. This is the basic culinary mint used for mint sauce, marinades and seasoning meat and fish. Also has uses as a foliage plant that has a wonderful scent. Mint plants prefer full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost. Plants are invasive, so you may be advised planting into a pot and then sinking into the ground to stop excessive root spread. Alternatively, all Mints are ideal for tubs or pots, or in places where people will brush against the foliage to emanate the strong fragrance.

Size guide - Pack of 5 Herb Plug Plants 

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.

  • Mints are well known to be invasive and will try and take over wherever they are grown.  They have underground runners that come up here, there and everywhere, so are often best in a tub or container in garden soil.   You can also plant mint into an old plastic pot and sink the pot into the ground. This will help to contain the roots.

I order some apple and spearmint plugs, ordering was easy and good service, although when the mints arrived the leaves looked quite black almost burnt but probably due to hot weather in transit. Repotted and now taking off and growing well.

I'm really pleased with these plug plants, they're in great condition and growing away really well in the cold greenhouse having been potted up. And, most importantly, I'd like to say a big "thank you" to everyone at Brookside Nursery for continuing to provide their usual fantastic service even in all the current madness. You're all very much appreciated, thank you.
