Mint Difference

I am very happy with my Mint collections. It is growing very well but what surprises me is the difference in growth habit and how very similar mints grow differently.

I have a lime and grapefruit mint here. The lime shoots up with little leaf where as the Grapefruit starts in a with open leaves. These plants are in a quite shady spot in the garden but are about 13inch apart.

  1. I bought a mint plant last week and I planted in a large planter and 1 meter of the ground. I am determined that this young lady does not get loose in the garden!!! That said I am looking forward to using the herb in some great deserts, or even better with a Leg of Lamb

  2. I've never heard of grapefruit mint before. Must be pretty wonderful.
