Mint, Spearmint aka Garden Mint (Mentha spicata)

Mint, Spearmint aka Garden Mint – Mentha spicata

Mint, Spearmint aka Garden Mint – Mentha spicata is also known as Garden Mint or Green Mint. Fragrant minty foliage and attractive lilac flowers in summer that are popular with pollinators.

This is the classic culinary mint for mint sauce and new potatoes. Also great in teas and has medicinal properties too.

Try using it as a garnish for fruit cups and sweet dishes. Maybe add some to jazz up a cocktail!

As with all mints it is a vigorous grower. It will grow quite happily in a container where it cant be too boisterous next to other plants.
