Mint is one of the most flavourful and most invasive herbs, but it is very popular, and very useful. Mint is also easy to grow due to it’s tendency to invade an entire allotment – it needs little care and attention to stay alive.

It is easiest to buy live mint, and plant it in a pot of good quality soil which is kept well watered. As it grows, pick regularly, and cut off diseased leaves. If the disease takes over the entire plant, you may need to replace it, or the amount of leaves fit for eating may be reduced.
