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.
Red Mint (Mentha x smithiana syn. M. rubra) Herb in 9 cm Pot
Mentha x smithiana 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. Red mint will produce small mauve flower spikes in summer, and grow 45cm tall.
This perennial peppermint flavoured and scented mint makes it an excellent choice for culinary use, and the red-tipped dark green/purplish leaves, which appear on red stems, are an excellent garnish. Good for making a peppermint tea.
