We love it, we hope you do to!

Botanical mint, which is most closely aligned in flavour to peppermint, is a fast-growing aromatic herb belonging to the Mentha family. Due to its prolific growth habits, the plant is quick to become root bound in small pots - which will strangle its health - and so growing in larger pots is recommended.
