Product Description

Ocado Growing Mint Pot.

Mint grows best in moist conditions. It can be grown very successfully outside but remember it spreads very quickly and ideally should be planted in a pot. Keep the compost moist to the touch. Remove sprigs down to a side shoot and use whole, or remove leaves and chop.
Harvest the outer most stems and any branches that are shading other plants, as well as the tallest stems that are growing into the light. Cut mint just above a set of leaves (growth point) and not more than half way down the stem.

Potted herbs are grown as a 'cut as you need' fresher alternative to cut herbs; suited to growing in well lit, protected conditions on the windowsill or worktop. Potted herbs are mainly suited to the indoors, however, they can be planted outdoors, with varying success during spring and summer. Mint will successfully grow outside all year round but the Ocado Growing Mint has been grown in a glasshouse so your mint will need gentle acclimatising if you are to plant out during the winter.

As most herbs originate from hot countries they like to be kept on the dry side. The more light and heat they are exposed to, the more frequently they will need watering. During winter, you will probably find that potted herbs will not need to be watered very often.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Product Information


Prepare & Use

Care Instructions:

Watering the herbs from the bottom is the key to keeping them healthy and to prolonging their life. Your herbs have always been watered from below so by keeping to this regime you will extend the life of the plant.

Remove the herb pots from their sleeves and place the pots in the tray. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water

Arrived in bad condition

Unfortunately, it wasn't very well protected for delivery so arrived broken and died within a couple of days.

Plant is tiny with tiny leaves

The plant we received was a tiny sprig with tiny little leaves. If I don't want to decimate the entire plant for a single cup of tea, then it will be summer before it's grown big enough to be used. If I'd wanted to wait months before actually using some mint, I'd have grown from seed. Decorative use only, or it's a long term project.

The only mint you'll ever need

Great little plant. Had it in window still to start with and used leaves from it. Now in a container outside and still growing! Great product. Sorry Ocado, but it is so good I'll probably never need to buy another one.

Lasted well

I know mint is hardy but I was surprised that it carried on growing and giving fresh leaves for a few weeks. I was impressed.
