Mint - Moroccan UT

Syn. Tuareg mint, Maghrebi mint
Moroccan Mint is a hardy, spreading, herbaceous perennial herb with a sweet, crisp, minty taste. The leaves are smaller than spearmint and the flowers are lavender and appear in mid-summer. It grows 40-60 cm high. We recommend growing all mints in a container such as large saucer as they are fast spreading, vigorous plants although Moroccan is a more compact plant than some others. It is tolerant of a range of soil types and will grow from full sun to a semi-shaded position. It is one of the most useful of the culinary mints and besides the traditional Moroccan Tea can be used in sauces, potato salad, watermelon juices and cucumber sambal. To prepare Moroccan tea, green tea is first brewed, then boiled with sugar, and then fresh mint is added and the mixture allowed to steep for several minutes before serving. It is easy to dry or freeze some for use in winter when the plant is semi-dormant. The flowers are attractive to bees and other beneficial insects.

Pennyroyal is a low growing, to 15 cm high, groundcover perennial with pretty mauve flowers. It prefers moist, humus-rich soils in semi-shade and will continue to spread into areas with these suitable growing conditions. The small, glossy, green leaves are very aromatic to walk on. Pennyroyal is an effective insect deterrent and can be strewn anywhere ants are a problem. Dry some leaves to deter silverfish from bookshelves. It is also considered a good mosquito and flea repellent. Grow it in damp areas of the garden where mossies are a nuisance. Like all mints we recommend growing it in a container such as large saucer to keep it under control. Pennyroyal should not be used as food as it is considered toxic, to people, pets and poultry. This is not surprising given its usefulness as a pest control.

If you don't use the leaves regularly then cut back the whole plant from time to time to encourage tender new growth. Salad burnet prefers a slightly alkaline soil so add a little lime. It will do best in a sunny position but will tolerate some shade and needs plenty of water in hot weather for the leaves to stay tender. It will grow all year around.

Winter savory is an easy to grow, low growing, perennial herb with small white flowers. It is very similar in appearance to thyme but with a spicier, peppery flavour. It is used to make vinegars, added to stuffings, potato salads, soups and stews. Savory is popular for people on low salt diets for its ability to season a dish without the need for salt and pepper. This is another reason why it is added to dried beans, as adding salt during cooking will toughen the skins making the beans hard to soften. It does well in a terracotta pot.
