Plant Details

Probably our favourite mint. The leaves of this mint smell and taste strongly of lime (with a minty twist) and make a wonderful tea, or can be added to iced drinks. Also useful in fish and chicken dishes.

Spikes of attractive purple flowers in summer.

Height: 40cm

Common name(s): Lime mint

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots 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.
