This Basil Mint plant has arrived very healthy however I cannot get any Basil fragrance or flavour from the plant. The leaves look like a basil leaf but it is mainly mint in fragrance& taste. Very disappointing :-(

Basil Mint (Mentha x piperita f. citrata 'Basil') Herb in 9cm Pot
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.
Basil Mint will produce dark green leaves and small mauve flower spikes in mid to late summer, and grow 30-60 cm tall.
The subtle taste of basil in the young new leaves, in early spring, make this herb an excellent choice for combining with tomatoes.
