Peppermint dormant root cuttings

This is a beautiful peppermint with a very "pepperminty" flavour. It is the one we grow commercially.

We have root cuttings availabe for a limited time over the next two weeks as we dig up our dormant plants and give them new beds. They are bare rooted with some growing tips in place.

Small: enough for a 20cm wide planter/pot
Large: enough to fill 1 m2 of garden bed.

Planting Instructions:
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.


HEALTH BENEFITS
Aromatic and very flavourful, peppermint is wonderful for the digestive system, acting as a carminative to reduce gas, ease nausea and sooth cramping. It is an uplifting herb and cooling to the body.
