Peppermint is a perennial herb grown for its fresh minty leaves. Grows best in damp spots but can become weedy so grow it in pots to contain it. Use fresh or dried as a flavouring for herbal teas and drinks, sprinkle fresh leaves over salads or use as a flavoursome garnish atop of cooked dishes. Approximately 1250 seeds per packet.
Scientific Name: Mentha piperita
