Information on, uses of and how to grow mint:

There are several varieties of mint. Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Peppermint and Penny-Royal (Mentha Pulegium). All can be grown very easily from cuttings but they do prefer well manured soils. They can spread very quickly and some people prefer to keep them confined in containers. The leaves are used for flavouring, mint sauce and drinks.
