Mint Spear Mentha Spicta (Garden Mint) | 5 Large Plug Plants

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.

  • 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.
