Mint, 'Tashkent' Mint
a.k.a. Curly Spearmint
Mentha spicata 'Tashkent'
This is an attractive slightly curly-leafed form of Spearmint
from Russia (hence 'Tashkent'),
with all the virtues of the better known plain Spearmint.
Like all mints this is a hardy, fragrant perennial with a vigorous,
not to say rampant, growth habit!
Best grown in a pot as left free-range
will soon overpower most gardens.
Mints like a moist rich soil in at least partial shade
as they are prone to baking in full sun.
A culinary mint used for all the common uses
of mint from Mint Sauce to Mint Tea!
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item , where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
