This herb dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or part shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering Period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The smaller than average leaves of this mint have a flavour that has a hint of strawberries, which makes it a delicious addition to summer drinks. An unusual addition to the herb garden, it is also ideal for a sensory garden.

  • Garden care: When plants have finished flowering in summer, cut flowered shoots back to 5cm (2in) above the surface of the compost. Mint can be vigorous in the garden so unless you want a big clump, you can contain it by planting it in a large pot. Do keep it well watered though.
