English Mint has the flavor and aroma of spearmint with a delightfully crunchy texture and large smooth green leaves. Perfect for teas, mojitos, mint juleps, & garnishes. Mint is very easy to grow, but can spread aggressively through shallow underground runners, so growing in containers, using edging, or having a containment plan isn’t a bad idea. Pick mint regularly for better production by either harvesting individual leaves or cutting whole stems on established plants. Cut the plants back to the ground for the fall for healthier and more prolific plants the following year. Again, they really like to spread, so consider yourself warned.
