  • Aids digestion
  • Excellent in sauces and teas

Mint has square stems and green, fragrant foliage. It is great with vegetables, in sauces, or in herbal teas. Freeze the leaves in ice cubes for a refreshing treat. Mint also aids digestion. Best planted in containers on its own, as it tends to spread and crowd out other plants and can spread in your yard or garden as well. To prevent crowding in a mixed herb pot, harvest often! This mint is a more compact plant. 

Height: 18-24 inches

Uses: Culinary, Aromatic, Medicinal, Beverage

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in rich, moist soils. Keep in mind that mint spreads rapidly via underground rhizomes. In a container with other herbs, you will need to cut it back often so the other plants can compete, and plan ahead before planting it in the ground as spreading will likely need to be controlled. One of the best ways to grow mint is in a container of its own.

    Was so excited to find it here! We just moved back to the USA and could not find Moroccan Mint anywhere until I found this place. It’s perfect for the tea we like to make! Came very healthy, it is growing very nicely now!
