A perennial herb with pale pink flowers in summer and grey-green leaves with a delicate apple fragrance.
Mints require well drained soil with plenty of summer water. Given these conditions they can run away so should be planted where this is desired or in large pots.
Finely chop leaves and use them in sauces and drizzles for deserts, steep whole leaves in boiling water to create a refreshing tea. Make strong tea then mix with chilled soda water for a tasty summer drink. Use sprigs as garnish for deserts, salads and cocktails.
