Our plant safely arrived, healthy condition - can't wait for it to grow so I can start cooking with it!
I could smell it before I opened the box and the smell was absolutely amazing, arrived in excellent condition and going well
My river mint has grown amazingly well in just a short time - easily quadrupling in size in 6 weeks. Fantastic replacement to a standard mint, with a slight spearmint flavour to it. It's on a west facing deck in Ballarat, so very promising start to a new fave.
River mint was the first of my plants from my recent Melbourne Bush Food delivery to need a haircut. I'd picked a lot of single leaves to try and get a sense of the flavour and to me the leaves have a slightly more peppermint flavour than non-native mint. It works beautifully substituted directly in your favourite mint recipes, sweet or savory. I'm going to try sorbet next. I have planted it in a shallow pot on my deck, where it's equally greedy for water as my existing mint pot, but equally forgiving.
My plants from Melbourne Bushfoods arrive alive and healthy. I followed instructions, and have repotted - and they are still alive a week later! Am hopefully they will grow into big healthy plants. The river mint smells amazing!
Amazing, the plants and chocolate arrived quickly in great condition. My native raspberry is even flowering 2 weeks after receiving them! Only thing I would add is please add stickers of which plant is which as even with the care guide I had trouble telling them apart.
Wonderful will be buying again soon!
