SPOT­LIGHT ON: Mint

Whether used in sweet or savoury dishes, as a breath­fresh­ener or a stom­ach-sooth­ing tea, mint has end­less uses – and is re­ally easy to grow. Its vig­or­ous roots do spread rapidly how­ever, so our friends at Su­perb Herb rec­om­mend con­tain­ing mint in its own tub so as not to dis­turb its neigh­bours. They also ad­vise cut­ting it back fre­quently to en­cour­age the pro­duc­tion of young ten­der shoots. If you have two or three plants, these can be cut al­ter­nately, thus en­sur­ing con­stant sup­ply.
