Product Description

The fresh scent of mint is unmistakable and evokes thoughts of spring with new potatoes, peas and lamb and of course mint sauce, but try a refreshing mint tea or adding a few leaves to orange juice for a tasty alternative.

Serving Suggestion
Pour freshly squeezed orange juice over fresh mint leaves and ice or infuse fresh mint leaves with hot water for a refreshing tea.

Storage

Do not refrigerate, wash before use.

Growing herbs are 'cut as you need', harvest just above leaf growth to encourage the plant to re-grow. Mint can be planted outside once acclimatised. To stop it spreading plant it in the pot.

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 on a saucer. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up. As most herbs originate from hot countries they like to be kept on the dry side. The more heat and light they are exposed to, the more frequently they will need watering. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water.

Instructions


1. Pick leaves as required.
2. Wash before use.
3. Tear or chop.
4. Add at the end of cooking for maximum flavour.

Still going strong after three weeks

Impressed - have just given it a light watering every couple of days.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

didn't last long

Unfortunately, despite me being good with plants, it died fairly rapidly. Not the first time. So will be the last time I buy. So tired of supermarket plants dying within weeks of purchase.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Not the best

Having written a glowing review about Thai Basil I noticed it rapidly went down hill. First time purchasing mint from ocado and it did not live up to expectation. Mint is an easy grower, almost wild, but the pot was delivered upside down, damaged box, mud all over the leaves and not enough soil to keep the tiny, ungenerous plant standing upright. I just wanted a little easy access mint in my kitchen window to throw into recipes, but this was really meagre and looks ugly!

Still growing happily

Just like my basil, my mint is growing happily and smelling lovely on my windowsill 2 months on, just repotted it!

2 dead plants in a row

Serious quality issues recently, will avoid from now on.
