The leaves of aromatic plants are used in the kitchen; if necessary letís remember to use only agricultural parasiticides, and letís follow the lacking period indicated on the label: if we spray a plant we can Ďt use its leaves for alimentary use for the period of time indicated, when the chemical product is harmful. We suggest to position the The Apple mint in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.We advise cultivating the The Apple mint outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.

Fertilize Apple mint
During the spring months letís add to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, some fertilizer for green plants, rich in nitrogen and potassium.

Cultivation Apple mint
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Apple mint is a perennial herb plant. The Apple mint is small in size and 45 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Water Apple mintTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 2-3 weeks . To use these plants year round we can proceed with harvesting, in the spring or in the summer. The plants should be washed and dried well, then dehydrated, or frozen, to use them during the year.

Pests Apple mint
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Mold Apple mint
These plants need a substratum with an optimum drainage.
