Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant, otherwise known as Mentha Berries & Cream™, is a fantastic edible hybrid from Sara's Superb Herbs® that tastes of mint with a hint of, you guessed it, berries! With multiple uses in baked goods, drinks, and other culinary specialties, these delectable wisps of clean-tasting perfection can be dried and added to sachets. Emerald leaves complemented by blooms of violet will accompany whiffs of sweet mint perfume from summer to late fall. A delight to pollinators and people alike, Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant can be harvested throughout the summer and fall. Prune annually in the fall to encourage an even better crop the following year. The only caution you should take regarding this fast-growing, mounding herb is how to prevent it from overwhelming its neighbors.

Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant Care  

This perennial herb thrives when exposed to full sun and when planted in loamy, moist, well-draining soil during the spring. The soil can be amended with peat moss or compost to increase the amount of humus. Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant prefers soil with a pH that varies somewhere from 5.6 to 7.5. In an effort to prevent this plant from roaming in the garden, consider planting it in containers buried underneath the soil. Doing so will help keep this herb’s fast-growing roots from invading the space of other nearby plants. Overall, Berries & Cream™ Peppermint is a fine choice to add to a culinary herb collection for any newbie gardener with little free time to spare.

Growing Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant 

Berries & Cream™ Peppermint thrives when provided 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight. Growing to a maximum height of 12 to 24 inches, this compact herb will grow vigorously year-round. 

If growing in a container, choose a pot that is at least 10 inches in diameter and is equipped with multiple drainage holes. Repot fast-growing Berries & Cream™ Peppermint once per year. When repotting, divide the plant into halves and place each section into a new pot that is one to two inches bigger than the old pot. Grown indoors, this herb is superb when used as a verdant filler to complement other multi-colored plants.

Watering Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant 

Once established, Berries & Cream™ Peppermint requires average watering. Water containers two or three times per week.

Feeding Berries & Cream™ Peppermint Plant 

If maintained outside and the soil is topdressed annually with compost, Berries & Cream™ Peppermint does not require fertilizer. If maintained inside, however, this perennial does require occasional feeding. Simply apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer at half the manufacturer’s recommended strength each month.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
