Plant Details

The scent of Eau de Cologne. Can be used in cooking (very good with potatoes) but is also a very good fly deterrent when grown in a pot on a windowsill or even a patio table. Also said to deter rats!

Pink spires of flowers from July to September which are loved by bees.

Height: 90cm (although will not reach this height in a small pot!)

Common name(s): Eau de Cologne 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. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. 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 everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
