Cocktails a plenty trough
Mentha suavolens ‘Variegata’ and Sanguisorba officinalis
Containing Pineapple Mint and Salad Burnet
This is a deliciously scented, fruity mint. With pretty purpley undersides, a wonderful addition to drinks and fruit salads. This one isn't as robust as some mint varieties so won't take over completely!
The salad burnet is a big surpriser, chew one of the modest-looking leaves and wow - a cucumber explosion! Great in salads, with beans and in summery drinks. Try a few leaves in a G & T for a refreshing cool cucumber kick. Handily the leaves will keep growing throughout the winter - so you can pretend it's summer all year round.
Keep your trough in a sunny to partially shady position and keep the soil moist. A great one for a windowsill near your home bar!
Planted in a 31cm long Italian terracotta trough. Planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
