    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.

    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.
