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.

Moroccan Mint (Mentha spicata 'Moroccan') Herb in 9 cm pot

Moroccan Mint 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.

Moroccan Mint will produce small white flower spikes in mid to late summer, and grow 30-60 cm tall.

Herb Uses

Moroccan Mint is a spearmint and is a more compact plant than other spearmints, and is the best variety for making spearmint tea. An excellent all-rounder. This hardy perennial is essentially a culinary herb used in sauces to complement meats (mint sauce with lamb), soups, salads, vegetable dishes, sweet dishes and drinks. Used in the making mojito drinks.
