Mint Ginger - Plant

6592- Ginger Mint. Mentha arvensis 'Variegata’ (M. x gentillis)'

Perennial (hardy in zones 6-9)

Heart-shapes leaves flecked with gold make this a spectacular ornamental mint. Its fruity taste carries a hint of ginger. The attractive plant brightens up the herb garden, while the leaves bring a refreshing flavour to the kitchen in fruit salads, with melon and with tomatoes. A few leaves will garnish any yogurt-based recipe beautifully. Infusions made by steeping fresh or dried leaves of ginger mint can be used to calm a nervous stomach or ease a headache. The plant is happy in moist soil with sun or part shade and will expand into the garden easily unless it is restrained in pots or bottomless buckets sunk into the garden bed. Ginger mint is well suited to container gardening, where it can decorate a patio or doorstep while offering its many benefits to the cuisine.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
