    Excellent I'll check mine as well, I'm sure I've got more varieties than I've listed.

    My mints are still appearing too. The bad news is - the labels aren't
    So sorry, SP, I have nothing reliable to swap as I've never been able to tell basil mint from the other perfumey ones.
    Glad your banana mint is alive and well

    That's alright VC
    if I'm honest I probably don't need any more varieties. I don't know what to do with the ones I've got!

    I "think" from now on, I'll keep a mother herb plant in a bucket with the name painted on it and only plant out its offspring in the garden as I seem to lose track of them when I let them roam.
    Maybe I need a Herb Bucket garden...............wanders off, thinking................

    My banana mint never seems to survive the winter. I bring it in the house too.
