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

    If you love making mint tea, then this is one of the best varieties to choose. You can also use it however to flavour salads, potatoes, peas, lamb - or make mojitos! Fast and easy to grow, it will soon spread to form a good-sized clump.
