Grow Your Own Mint
12 March 2015
Are you loving our new Herb Pot and Scissors but wondering what to put in it? This lovely little pot is specifically designed to hold standard large supermarket herb growing pots, but if you want to encourage your own green fingers, why not try growing some Mint?
Mint is easy to grow all year round, but nothing says Spring quite like its lively scent and bright colour. With sunny evenings in the garden approaching, your own fresh mint supply is perfect for keeping you well supplied with mojitos. The handy scissors that come with this stylish pot mean that you can strip your Mint straight from the stem, with the 5 blades working to release the juices immediately, making your Mojito making that much faster!
Other great and simple uses for mint this summer include making zingy mint chocolate ice-cream, cool and refreshing Raita or classic Lamb steaks topped with tangy mint sauce. Plus, try sprinkling on salads or adding to pasta dishes to instantly freshen up the taste.
Check out this handy guide to growing your own mint, we’d love to see what you put yours in.
