Last week when I pay a visit to my sister's place, I noticed that she grows her potty garden very well. I asked for few stems of Bowles mint leaves (the species that is big and furry type). I used the leaves to boil a pot of natural cough remedy to soothe my cough. Then, the steams are planted.
This type of mint leaves have very strong smell. You'll either love it or hate it. Of course, I like it a lot. It's very refreshing.
