    Default Banana mint

    Anyone know anything about Banana mint?
    I think I've lost mine
    It's been pampered as well! Kept in the polytunnle over winter. My strawberry & pineapple mints have both survived. Both have new growth on them but nothing from the banana yet.
    Any ideas, suggesting welcome.

    Didn't realise there are so many mints. I made the mistake of tasting Eau de Cologne mint.Mint Herb Plant Varieties

    Ha ha yeah I'm growing Eau de Cologne mint as well, it's not the best tasting mint in the world is it !? But it's pretty. There's some interesting varieties on that link. Think I'll stick with the 10 or 12 I've got, but you never know
    I've found a replacement for my banana mint here

    If I can't resuscitate my plant.


    Can someone sort that link out its not right.....thank you
