In your garden

Opt for organic options where possible in the care of your mint, we recommend using Searles SeaMax® Fish & Kelp, as this product is a fertiliser which also stimulates the plants natural resistance to insect & disease attack.

Beyond its culinary appeal – Mint foliage emits a wonderful minty fragrance  when crushed or walked on in the garden.  A great ground cover around garden paths!
