My Mint bush grows in an old water fountain in my garden. It was there when I moved in four years ago and is still there now.
Everything is getting hacked in my garden at the moment. Today it was the turn of the Mint. Every year I cut it back really hard – right down to ground level and I even pull some if the roots up.
Every year I think, ‘oh, no I’ve done it this time. This will never grow back.’ And every year it does grow back, just as lush, green and fragrant as the previous year. I’ll be making Mint tea with this come May, just you see.
