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.

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.
Ideal for starting herb garden
Many thanks for my mint plants i can now enjoy my new potatoes with a lovely flavor, Super service and super plants thanks again.
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.
Excellent Service especially with all the upheaval caused by COVID.. Plant plugs arrived in superb condition and are currently flourishing in garden/greenhouse.
Plants received on time and in beautiful condition. Used Brookside before and impressed as usual. Thanks everyone
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.
