How do you grow Moroccan Mint?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 16 July 2013 12:55 pm
This hardy, compact variety of mint will grow to a height of 60cm (24″). Grow moroccan mint in partial shade and a moist well drained soil. The plant dies down in winter and new growth starts to appear in March. The leaves are usually ready for picking from June onwards. Mint can be invasive and is best grown in pots. When re-potting use a multi purpose compost or a John Innes number 1 potting compost. In the garden, plant it in a bottomless bucket sunk into the ground to restrict the spreading roots. The white flowers produced from summer through to autumn are attractive to bees and butterflies. Before the first frosts pot up a plant and bring it indoors for use over winter.

This spearmint flavoured mint is ideal for making sauces, jellies, adding to vegetables and making mint tea.
