Growing Calendar for Strawberry Mint Plants
Delivery: Late May to Early June
Variety produces many leaves with intense strawberry taste all growing on compact perennial plants. Pick little and often for a plentiful supply of refreshing and flavoursome mint. Great for refreshing drinks for a well-earned break in the garden or on the vegetable patch.
Plant around 3 plants in a pot with 12in (30cm) diameter for successful leaf growth year after year.
Whether enjoying full sun, or part shade this is a top-performing perennial plant worth having around.
How your plants arrive
Each of your mint plants arrive to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.
Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up. Position 3 plants within a pot or basket with 12in (30cm) diameter for a lovely display of attractive leaves that are sweet and medicinal.
Your mint plants will arrive to you in a plastic container contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The container allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check your 3 plants are there in the plastic container, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your mint plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.
You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
