After 8 Mint Plant
After 8 Mint | Ecologically grown
Agastache rugosa | Perennial | Heirloom
This is a vigorous mint with one of the strongest aromas and flavours of the mint family. The foliage is dark green with plenty of large leaves to harvest.
Once the plant is established harvest whole stems down to ground level to encourage new leafy shoots from the base. Later in summer older stems will produce purple / violet flowers.
Like all mints it prefers a rich moist soil in full sun or partial shade, spreading by runners both on and just below the soil surface, so must be planted with care so that it does not swamp surrounding plants. A wide deep container is an ideal spot to keep it under control and have it to hand ready for use in the kitchen.
Harvesting tip: Pick often for higher production. Leaves can be harvested starting first year.
