Mentha x piperita black peppermint(Black Peppermint) 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.
Black Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) Herb in 9cm Pot
Black Peppermint is a native of Europe, but has been naturalised worldwide. 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.
Peppermint will produce small purple/pink flower spikes in summer, and grow 45cm tall.
The fresh menthol taste of peppermint makes it an excellent choice for culinary use, especially for peppermint tea and to flavour ice cream, sorbets and drinks, and the very dark brown oval pointed leaves are an attractive variation on the traditional peppermint.
