Review for our peppermint: "Best peppermint tea! I love this peppermint tea, it’s so minty and a little goes a long way. Best peppermint tea I’ve tried" JW
Peppermint does have the tendency to spread so plant it where it can spread or plant into a pot or a bed with some edging in place.
Peppermint loves water, but not being waterlogged. Make sure to water well over the dry summer period. Don't water the leaves to prevent rust.
Plant in a sheltered site in full sun or partial shade. Prepare the soil with compost and mulch lightly.
Make a wee depression in the soil and lay the dormant plants lengthways into the shallow trench. Have the green growing tips sticking up.
This is the amount for a 20cm wide planter/pot (choose "Small" above)
Make a shallow trench into the soil (below).
Cover the roots and stalks with soil.
Keep the growing tips above the soil surface.
Add a light layer of mulch on top and the peppermint will emerge strongly in spring.
