Shade lovers trough
Mentha x piperata 'After Eight' and Asperula oderata
Containing After Eight Mint and Sweet Woodruff
This trough contains a powerfully minty tasting mint with smooth chocolatey undertones. It has gorgeous purple stems and works well in syrups or deserts.
Sweet woodruff is a less well known but deliciously sweet hay-scented delicate herb. It can be infused to make a soothing tea, or use the gorgeous starburst petals to decorate wine cups or cool drinks. Bees and other pollinators will love the small clusters of star-like white flowers from this herb in spring.
This trough has been designed to work well in an overshadowed or shadier area. Trim your mint regularly to keep it bushy
Planted in a 31cm long Italian terracotta trough. Planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
