Growing & using Lemon Bergamot Mint

Close up of Lemon Bergamot Leaves

Lemon Bergamot Mint is a lovely citrus scented mint that can be used fresh or dried.

Like all mints, Lemon Bergamot Mint, should be confined to a pot. Mints grow better in pots with lots of surface area rather than lots of depth. A long window box makes a good container at least for the first year. After that, your mint will need to be divided and repotted with fresh soil each spring.

Lemon Bergamot Mint makes a great addition to our Gourmet Herb Garden Six Pack.

This plant is sometimes available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant. They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space.Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see if Lemon Bergamot Mint Plug Trays are available.

See our Great Mint Repotting Caper for more on proper soil, division and replanting of mints.
