Welcome to our fresh mint herb plant collection!

We take great pride in growing a wide range of around 40 different mint varieties throughout the season. Our selection changes depending on what's ready at any given time, so you'll always have a variety to choose from.

While it's not easy to categorise all of our mints into either spearmint (spicata) or peppermint (piperita), these distinctions can give you an idea of their unique flavours, fragrances, and uses. Spearmints have a lower menthol content than peppermints, making them perfect for use in and with food. Peppermints, however, are great for drinks, but there's no hard and fast rule - it all comes down to your preference.

We also grow mints that are prized for their fragrances. Eau de Cologne and Lavender Mints are two of our favourites, but many others are just as lovely. And let's remember our fruity mints! In the summertime, our Apple, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Orange, and Strawberry mints are perfect for adding a refreshing twist to your cocktails.

Whether you're a culinary enthusiast or a mixology aficionado, our fresh mint herb plants are sure to impress. So browse our collection today and find the perfect mint for your needs!

Fresh Cooking Herbs - your great partners in the kitchen

Mint plants have a long and fascinating history that dates back thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans used mint for various purposes, including cooking, medicine, and even as a form of currency. During the Middle Ages, mint became popular throughout Europe to freshen breath and treat common ailments. Monks in monasteries grew and cultivated mint, and it was often used to make teas, syrups, and other remedies.

Today, mint is widely grown and used worldwide, and its uses have expanded to include everything from candy and chewing gum to aromatherapy and essential oils. With such a rich and storied history, it's no wonder that mint remains one of the most popular herbs in the world today.

Mint Plants - Growing

Mint plants are relatively easy to grow and are a great addition to any garden. They prefer a location that receives partial shade or dappled sunlight. These adventurous plants love to explore new pastures and prefer areas that receive partial shade or dappled sunlight. The best way to control mint herb plants is to grow them in large pots of moist, well-draining soil. Be careful not to overwater the plants, as this can cause root rot. Prune your plants regularly to promote healthy growth and prevent them from becoming too leggy. Pinch back the tips of the stems regularly to encourage bushier growth.

Mint Plants- Harvesting

Mint plants should be allowed to grow to at least 6 inches tall before harvesting to give them time to establish themselves and produce plenty of foliage. When harvesting, always leave at least two-thirds of the plant intact to continue growing. Use sharp scissors or pruning shears to cut the stems just above a leaf node. Harvest mint leaves in the morning when the essential oils are at their highest concentration for the best flavour and aroma.
