Garden mint
Garden mint
Monastery gardens dating back to the 9th century all grew mint andother herbs but before the 1700s, writers commonly referred to garden mint as spearmint, due to peppermint actually being a hybrid which did not appear under cultivation until the mid to late 17th century. Commercial cultivation of peppermint began in the 1750s in Surrey. Most mints can be found growing almost anywhere except in direct sun, preferring light, moist and moderately rich soils and they are often found near streams.
