Plant Overview

Believe it or not this mint tastes and smells of basil (albeit a minty-basil). Most unusual. Use in drinks and savoury dishes. Excellent for pesto.

Can be dried.

Pale purple flowers in summer.

All flavoured mints smell first of mint, with the flavour being the secondary scent. The best example of this is mint chocolate, where you can taste both chocolate and mint.

Height: 60cm

Common name(s): Basil mint

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow almost everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
