Like most mints Grapefruit Mint is easy to grow. With its furry leaves, deep green with a hint of mulberry in colour, Grapefruit Mint looks good in the herb garden, especially when it flowers. The tall spikes of attractive purple flowers, which are edible, make excellent cut flowers. The intensely aromatic citrus-mint leaves work especially well in fruit desserts.
Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
Raised in an organic and peat-free environment, grow in moist soil in full sun. To prevent mint becoming invasive, plant in containers or use deep containers and plunge these into the soil. Will reach a height of around 45cm.
