Chocolate Mint is a hardy perennial Mint, which has purple flowers from late spring to early summer. This plant is a firm favourite to make Mint chocolate muffins and cup cakes, where the leaves can be shredded up and added to the mixture, as well as using some fresh leaves on the top as a garnish.

Mints are often overlooked as ornamental plants but this is a mistake. They can bring a nice colour and structure to a garden or pot. Chocolate mint is a great one to look at as it has a lovely deep green/burgundy tinge to the leaves and stems.

About the Mint Chocolate

Care Instructions

Mints generally enjoy moist, well drained soil. Water newly planted mints regularly, for at least a few months. Ensure they don't dry out, and keep an eye on ones in pots, as they tend to dry out a little quicker. Mint is very low maintenance.

Position, sunlight and more

Mint thrives in both light and shade. Potted Mint can be planted right through the autumn. Pick often, to keep plant compact and producing new growth.

Height and Spread

Mint Chocolate grows to a height of around 40cm and spreads to about 45cm.

Feeding, Pruning & more

Feeding - Fill with a multiopurpose compost, or an enriched garden compost.
Pruning - Mint dies back over winter, so remove faded stems in spring, before the new shoots start coming through.
Propogation -Take cuttings, which will give you new free plants and help stimulate, the parent plant. When mint finishes flowering in late summer, cut back the whole plant to around 5cm from base.

Our pot & plant size explained

At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
