December – Mint Wild

Herb of the month


Wild Mint is magnificent – fabulous and fragrant, easy to grow, great for herb beginners and kids.

Mint has 100’s of great uses, the only thing not to love is when it swallow’s your garden whole. So keep the roots contained in a good-sized pot close to the kitchen in a sunny spot and water it well for best results.

Or you can plant straight into the middle of the lawn for a scent sensation as you mow, flavour new potatoes or use leaves in a tea to calm your stomach.

But wait – there’s more -try this Mint Mojito Mocktail Mint ParsleyMojito mocktail with Lemon

1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar

juice of a lemon
