Mentha spicata (Garden Mint) Herb Plant
Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Mint will thrive anywhere, preferring moist partly shady areas, and are easy to grow from cuttings or replanting of runners. To control spread, this herb should be planted in sunken bottomless containers and kept well watered to ensure good leaf production.
Garden Mint will produce small mauve flower spikes in mid to late summer, and grow 30-60cm tall.
This is the mint that Granny used in sauces to complement meats (mint sauce with lamb), soups, salads, vegetable dishes, sweet dishes and drinks.

Ordered this garden mint for my sister during lockdown and she was delighted with it. Superb healthy plant, with a lovely distinctive flavour and smell, and a good size for the price. Would fully recommend this nursery. Together with the other three varieties, its Mojitos all round. Many thanks.
Well developed plant
Very good quality specimen. Fast delivery in a clear green plastic protective container, specially designed for up to three pot plants. Would definitely use Hooks Green Herbs again if required.
