Mentha suavolens 'Variegata'
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, it also grows well in pots.
Grow in sun or partial shade and keep the soil moist. Cut back after flowering.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
Sunny or partially shady. Great in pots as it doesen't take over like some mints.
Rich and moist
Cut back after flowering. Ideally lift and divide the plant every autumn.
Up to 60cm high / Indefinite spread
