A very hardy deciduous fern, exploding into life each spring, when it produces a cone of fresh green new growth; good viewed from any angle but especially effective when viewed from above. In our opinion no bog or water garden is complete without this plant. 1.2m (4ft).

The fresh menthol taste of peppermint makes it an excellent choice for culinary use, especially for peppermint tea and to flavour ice cream, sorbets and drinks, and the very dark brown oval pointed leaves are an attractive variation on the traditional peppermint.

PLANT CODE: MENTH-ORA

Pineapple mint is a variegated cultivar of apple mint (Mentha suaveolens). It features attractive, variegated leaves, usually with white margins, on plants that grow up to a foot tall. The leaves are bumpy and hairy and the white edging can make them look as though they are sporting a ruffle. White or light pink flowers bloom on small spikes at the top of the plant in summer. The flowers attract a wide variety of pollinating insects, including bees and butterflies.

We were given this mint by Kim from the Cottage Herbery. She recommends it as the best for mint Sauce.

Available now in 9cm pots £3.50. Plant code: MENTH-GRAN

A native aquatic plant well worth growing in any reasonable sized pond. During the warmer months, it sends up short spikes full of pink flower buds which open to fringed white, star-shaped flowers that emit a very pleasant perfume. The durable foliage is equally attractive and provides homes for fish and wildlife.

Available now - bare root - 5 shoots with roots - £5. You can put these straight into the edge of your pond, anchored down with a stone and they will grow away nicely.

PLANT CODE: MENY
