Spearmint Mint

Mentha spicata

Collection: Herbs

Perfect for cooking or as a garnish, spearmint is best fresh, harvested as soon as you see it bloom. It spreads vigorously through its roots making it difficult to maintain in a garden, so we recommend growing it in pots. Use its flavorful leaves with vegetables and in any summer drink.
