Mint – Mentha sp ‘Basil’


Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.

Mentha sp ‘Basil’. 1.1L coir pot.

This hardy perennial tastes like sweet basil and adds a citrus / spice flavour to meals with a hint of mint.

The leaves will add an exotic flavour to fish, salads, soups and vegetables. When using in hot dishes, add the mint late as the mint fragrance fades quickly under heat.

The plant enjoys a full sun to part shade position but can tolerate lower light levels. It enjoys moist, well draining soils and can be grown easily in pots.

This plant should grow to about 45cm high by 100cm wide and requires adequate watering in summer. Cut back once a year (generally in autumn) to keep it under control and promote new growth.
