Product Details

Add fresh flavor to fruit salads, rice and grain dishes, and beverages including lemonade, hot or iced tea, and cocktails with our Fresh Mints Container Garden, a trio of three tasty varieties, each with its own distinct and delicious aroma and flavor profile. Mint ‘Hillary’s Sweet Lemon’ is a cross between an Apple Mint and a Lime Mint. Its soft green leaves emit an Apple-citrus aroma and taste. The plant’s attractive pale purple flowers appear on vertical spikes. Pineapple Mint is a vigorous ornamental variety that features downy, variegated leaves of green and creamy white. They carry a light fruity scent and flavor that make this a popular variety for beverages and fruit salads. Tiny pale purple flowers appear in late summer. Chocolate Mint is, as its name suggests, destined for dessert and sweet cocktail concoctions. A cousin to Peppermint, the dark green leaves have a reddish tint, and a chocolate fragrance and flavor. Plants are speckled with lavender flowers in late summer. Because Mints can spread aggressively in gardens, you may wish to plant this collection in a container. Total of 3 plants, 1 of each variety listed below.

  • Mint 'Hillary's Sweet Lemon' (Mentha hybrid)
  • Pineapple Mint (Mentha suaveolens ‘Variegata’)
  • Chocolate Mint (Mentha x piperita f. citrata)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 3 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 12" in diameter and 12" deep.

This collection is shown in our Cretan Pot Barrel Glastra, which is sold separately. Click here to order.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Mint (Mentha spp.) grows best in full sun to part shade and in moist, well-drained soil. Plants can spread vigorously by underground stems, so choose a location where that won't be a concern or restrict them by growing in a container or a confined area. For container-grown plants, water when the top 1" of soil is dry. Cut back plants after flowering in summer, or simply remove flowers stalks, to promote new vegetative growth. Stems can be cut down in fall. Mint is a perennial and, depending upon the variety, might be winter hardy in your area, or it may be a tender perennial and grown as an annual in colder climates. Check variety-specific information for plant hardiness.
