Plate to Plate Herbs: Mint
Mint is great to grow in the garden, despite the horror stories. It stays green all Summer, looks and smells great and can be used in mint sauses, mint tea and Summer cocktails like Pimms and mojitios.
The Marvel of Mint
Mint is perennial which means it will come back year after year. The plant will go dormant in the Winter, but it will sprout again in Spring. Mint can be divided and re-potted in Spring or Autumn.
