THE SEASONAL TREATS TO PLANT AND HARVEST THIS SEASON
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.
