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.

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.

Tiny an die in a couple of days even when watered.
Used to be good. But during the last half a year these are tiny mints which die in a couple of days even when well watered. They don't even smell like fresh mint.
Waitrose has much better quality, why don't you sell their fresh mint instead of this poor quality substitute?
I won't buy this any more. Even packaged mint from tesco is better than this.
