Great growing herb.
Lovely leafy specimen. Carefully delivered. Very pleased.
Not worth the money
Only quarter of a plant and it was squashed as potatoes packed on top of it.
Small and sparse leaves
My plant was delivered in good condition, but it has the smallest mint leaves I have seen. It is sparse too so I can only pick a few, which hardly flavours my tea.
Fresh, Fragrant and Hardy
Aside from smelling and tasting great, it's very hardy. Keep it on the window with plenty of sunlight, water it regularly and it'll continue to grow and provide you with fresh mint. Cut it dow regularly and you'll get a nice leafy crop.
The one I've received was of very poor quality, al
The one I've received was of very poor quality, almost dead. Only realised just how bad it really is when I was removing it out of the plastic.The plant itself was very small and there's barely any decent leaves on it.
I bought this with the intention of adding it to my pots of herbs in my garden (it's cheaper than garden centres). I'm delighted with the plant, not only is it growing well, I've taken several cuttings by leaving some short stems (minus most leaves) in a glass of water to root first. It would have been nice if the packaging said what kind of mint it was, but I assume it is spearmint.
Pathetic Specimen supplied
A pathetic specimen was supplied, 4 stems and, if I'm generous, 18 small leaves in total. It shows how sparse it was that i could easily count the leaves. Not Happy at all.
Educate your Husband in checking the groceries!
I'm sure the mint would have been good if what was delivered had more than one live stalk (and that died within 3 days). Moral: Have now drummed it into my husband (I shall leave it to your imagination as to how - hehe!) to check pots of growing herbs before accepting groceries in my absence.
Not minty fresh.
Have been really pleased with all the potted herbs I have had from Tesco previously, however this was one of the saddest looking plants I have ever seen! All the leaves had fallen off - it was basically a twig stuck in some earth with a plastic bag round it... refund issued quickly and efficiently by the fab customer service team, but would really have rather received a bag of cut mint in my order as a substitute.
Perfect when looked after
Still alone 4 weeks later, producing leaves for mint tea, lamb and the occasional pimms 😃
