Peppermint Plants

Mentha x piperita.

Peppermint is an old favorite for herb gardening. A delicious culinary herb, Peppermint plants are known to have a scent that is one of the strongest triggers of memory - one whiff of the cooling bouquet of this aromatic herb tends to back this up, as it conjures up images of candy canes!

Commercial uses are probably most familiar to people, but it can also be easily grown and put to a wide variety of culinary and medicinal purposes in your own home. Peppermint has been used for ages to help cure headaches, muscle cramps and chronic indigestion problems. The extracted essential oil, Menthol, is found in the plant's leaves and flowers and its soothing properties are useful in lotions, mouthwashes, soaps and candies.

The tea is used to ease digestion. This herb is a robust grower so give it plenty of room...or plant it in a container to avoid it taking over your garden! Plant mint in full to part sun in moist soil.

Also available in our four inch hand thrown Guy Wolff Greenhouse Pot. The aged finish of these classic terracotta pots will add style to your naturally beautiful plants! Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the “mostest”, or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.
