    Spearmint is the classic, applemint is great for a roast lamb, I use gingermint in many dishes, lemon mint is good in drinks or with chicken, and all mints.. good in a mojito!

    I have Atlas Mountain mint which I haven't yet found a use for. Anyone else have this?

    It's a Jekka mint. Furry and a blue green leaf colour. Very pretty!

    From the same group as Apple mint
    Mint | Sunland Herbs
    Mentha suaveolens ssp. timija (Atlas Mountains Mint): To 2′ tall. Small hairy oval grey-green leaves and mauve summer to fall flowers. Used for both medicine and cooking; said to prefer poor, well-drained soils.
    I do like mints but I get them all mixed up after a while - can't remember which is which or used for what

    Ooh Ta VC! I'll go have a look see. Mine are in big pots with half grit to half soil. Always. They seem to like it!
