Plant Overview

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!)

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.

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. 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%.
