Chocolate MInt


Regular price $6.00
Chocolate MInt

Name: Chocolate mint

 Mentha x piperita

Origin:

 

 This is a plant I have in the garden just so I can brush against it and smell the delicious minty chocolate scent. I like to brew the leaves for upset stomach, but usually just use it for smelling.

 Like other mints chocolate mint will spread aggressively if given the right conditions - it loves lots of water. It is best to grow it in a large pot on concrete to keep it under control.

 

When to plant: Any time as long as you keep it watered.

 

Plant Type: Spreading herb

 

Uses: Mint sauce, tea, sensory garden

 

Growing Conditions: Needs damp soil so keep up the water in summer. Can spread agressively if given the right conditions so you might want to keep it in a larg pot or tub on a cement area.

 

Pests and Diseases: none that I have seen

 

Special Qualities: Beautuful chocolate/mint scent, especially on hot days.
