Herb Garden at Wisley
RHS Wisley Gardens, Wisley, Woking, Surrey, GU23 6QB
Tel: 0845 260
In previous years there was a dedicated,
well-established, themed, herb garden (with many names). It has recently
being changed and replanted. Unfortunately
there is no information at all about it on their huge website. Fairly
high entry charge to Wisley Gardens - see website. There used to be a
few common and one uncommon mint, but I can't say what they have done in
the changes. In recent years they have had a number of mints in large
containers in the model Vegetable Garden area although there is no
certainty they will continue this in future years. General plant sales
area include some mints.
RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr, Rosemoor and Hyde Hall may also have herb
gardens but there is no information online.
Terrington, York, North
Yorkshire, YO60 6PB, Tel: 01653 648008
On my visit a couple of years ago I saw large lavender
garden displays (un-named), mixed herb and cottage garden plant beds
(mostly un-named). A dedicated small mint display area of 35 plants, in
small clay pots sunk in gravel bed labeled with common names. The plants
were a bit too young at the "Mint Weekend", but should be much
more worth seeing by now if they have continued with the project. Some pictures of the gardens, but no specific
information online. There is no charge to walk around the gardens. Herb
plants for sale including mints.
Thistleton, near Oakham, Rutland, LE15 7RE, Tel: 01572 767658,
Many display beds of many herbs, very well labeled, including
a nice thyme bed, all around the nursery sales area, all season. The
mints are on display in 10 litre pots, so are good size plants and show
you what all the small plant you might buy could look like. An Open Weekend in June when
other additional gardens areas with more herbs, including lavenders, rosemaries and oreganums,
the rest of the nursery and woodlands are open to the public, for a
voluntary donation. Herb plants fro sale.
The National Herb Centre
Banbury Road, Warmington, near Banbury, Warwickshire, OX17 1DF
They say there are six themed herb gardens, and so there should be
plenty to see, but I have no idea how many mints. Free admission. Herb
plants for sale.

Tel: 01246 854268
A well established parterre herb garden with herbaceous borders, a
lavender garden and a Physic garden with well labeled plants. I don't
know if there are any mints present. Herb plants for sale
Manor Herb Garden
Coton Manor, Coton, Northampton, NN6 8RQ
Tel: 01604 740219,
It appears that the herb garden is laid out as a parterre, which means
the emphasis is on design more than herb plant numbers. Plants for sale,
but only three mints listed.
Ryton-on-Dunsmore, near Coventry,
Haven't seen it for a long time, but there was quite a good size
herb garden, with a small number of mints present. There will be other
herbs dotted around the many other gardens as well. Entrance charge to the Gardens - see website for current
rates - free to RHS members. Small general plant sales area.

This National Trust property is "best known for its comprehensive
herb collection and traditional fruit orchards, Acorn Bank is a tranquil
haven with a fascinating industrial past". however the website makes
no other mention of the website in words or pictures, so I suppose we are
to go on the reputation, and a mention in Wikipedia that says they have
250 medicinal and culinary herbs.
There will be others worth seeing, especially in some Herb
Farms, that I do not know of so send me the info and I will add it.
