Mentha × piperita is a fast growing herb that is easy to care for. It emanates a powerful minty scent and will return year after year. Its bushy shape is well suited to the back of borders and herb gardens, but thrives in pots as well.

Peppermint has a strong flavour and an abundance of uses in the kitchen. It is commonly used to make herbal teas but is also useful in salads and desserts. It makes for refreshing, peppery garnish for summer drinks in the garden. Peppermint tea is widely known to alleviate nausea, aid digestion and relieve headaches.

Planting peppermint helps deter pests including spiders, flies, caterpillars, rats and mice. The tiny blooms will also prove irresistible to pollinators, and will attract bees and butterflies to your outdoor space.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only - The plant will be supplied in a growers pot.
