There’s multiple value with Minty™. Fragrant plants are a ‘must have’ in all gardens and if you want a hedge of them, there’s none better than this one. Minty™ is the perfect plant for small or large spaces, because it is so easily trimmed to the size you need. Allow it to reach full height and you have a fence screen of a couple of metres height; contain it in a large tub, and with a regular trim it’s happy to perform just as well. Full sun or light shade, and a moist well drained soil is all it needs to thrive. The soft mint-fragrant foliage is smothered in delicate mauve blooms during mid to late spring; you can even pick the flowers for a long lasting posy and enjoy the mint aroma indoors.
