Mint is one of the red-stemmed mints like
Peppermint. It has wonderful floral overtones that add a luscious
touch to any cup of tea. Red-stemmed mints or Mentha piperitas can be used
fresh but are more often used dried. We have had a few chefs tell us they
prefer this variety to other Mentha piperitas.
Like all mints, Lavender Mint,
should be confined to a pot. it is always wisest to grow each mint in its
own pot so they do not over take and destroy one another. Mints grow better in pots with lots of
surface area rather than lots of depth. Our 20
inch Oval Planter makes a great mint pot, at least for the first
year. After that, your mint will need to be divided and repotted with
fresh soil each spring.
Lavender Mint makes a great
addition to our Gourmet Herb
Garden Six Pack. It would also make a great addition to one
of our Tea Herb Garden Six
