Mentha spicata 'Kentucky Colonel'
Kentucky Colonel Spearmint
$6.95 / 3-inch pot
$108 / 128-plant plug tray
We always recommend planting mint in a container so that it does not take over your garden. A long, shallow container makes a perfect home for these rampant runner rogues. And, while beneficial insects love mint flowers, some mints make seeds that can sprout and come up without you noticing, so keep an eye on those flowers!
- Fresh spearmint
- Good quality brandy
Tightly pack a glass jar with mint and cover with brandy. After it stands for 2 to 3 weeks, strain it through a muslin bag. Take this brandy and add it to fresh herbs and more brandy and keep repeating until you have enough to use and the taste suits.
Mint flowers are also very tasty and any of these mints would make nice additions to our Edible Flower Herb Garden 6 Pack.
