Perennial ~ Height 30cm ~ Hardy
A clump forming herb with slender bulbs, cylindrical hollow leaves and pretty pink to purple globe shaped flowers in late spring or early summer. The leaves and flowers have a mild onion flavour.
Fresh leaves can be snipped into salads or used for butter, sauces, soups and vegetable, egg or cheese dishes.
For culinary use it is preferable to prevent flowering by cutting off flower buds - this will encourage leafy growth. However, the flowers are edible.

Apple mint's oval leaves are soft, slightly furry and, as its name suggests, scented with apple. Pink to white flowers follow in summer.
The leaves have a subtle taste. Good for mint sauce and jelly and also for adding to vegetables and salads.
