Mint, After Eight – Mentha piperita

Mint, After Eight – Mentha piperita is a strong, dark, pepperminty mint. Delicious scent but ignore the name as it can be enjoyed at any time!

Dark leaves with mauve flower spikes in summer that are attractive to pollinators.

Use for teas, or garnishing fruit cups and sweet dishes. Maybe add some to jazz up a summer drink or a cocktail.

As with all mints it is a vigorous grower. It will grow quite happily in a container where it can’t be too boisterous next to other plants!
