Fish Mint

Houttuynia cordata


Fish Mint is not actually a mint at all. It is quite attractive with heart shaped leaves and white flowers.  It is used in Asian cuisine, either fresh or cooked.  The roots which are long and slender are used as a vegetable for stir fries.  It has a unique flavour, slightly fishy with a hint of coriander and ginger to try my best to describe it.  It does thrive in water, so could be invasive, so it may be worth considering containing in a pot to minimise its spread.  You could also use it to make a tea.

  • Height 60cm
  • Heart shaped leaves and white flowers.
  • Grows best in a moist shady position

We are committed to safe delivery and sustainability

Our packaging materials have been carefully researched and selected with sustainability at the forefront of our packaging process. Even after the bumpiest of journeys and the harshest of climates, our plants will be delivered safely to your door as fresh as when they were picked from our nursery.


For plants arriving nursery fresh to your door.

Inside the box


We use recyclable cardboard throughout our packaging, this includes:

  • The outer box
  • Spacers for keeping your plants tightly packed and secure
  • Corrugated wrapping that offers a breathable environment for your plants as well as both strength and protection for the roots and foliage


During our packaging process we use bio-degradable bags to wrap the plant pot. This helps prevent soil from being lost during transit and helps retain moisture stopping the plants roots from drying out on warmer days.


Quickly, safely and hassle-free.

NEW Labels in 2022


Our stylish grey pots that our 9cm herb plants are grown and supplied to our customers in are 100% reusable & recyclable. This means you can use them for seasons to come growing your own plants and then recycle them when you decide its time for them to have a new life.


Our NEW plant labels in 2022 are also recyclable and are designated with the PET logo. They also provide lots of useful information about the plant – no more contradictory Google searches, learn directly from the master growers at Kitchen Garden.


We are committed to being a sustainable nursery and the compost we use makes a difference.


We grow and supply all our plants in a special mix, of locally made, peat-free compost. This helps protect our peatlands, helping combat climate change. Peat bogs store carbon, control flooding and create homes for wildlife. Destroying them causes damage to our already sensitive habitats and climate.


In addition, we are a pesticide-free nursery. This means our plants are healthier, taste better and last longer when picked from.

I have purchased herbs from Kitchen Garden Plant centre and the quality of the plants are unparalleled. Such a fantastic selection to choose from and all grown on their family nursery from scratch. Packaging is great and the advice and guidance offered by this knowledgable team is simply the best. 10/10 would recommend and would only by my plants from this lovely team.

I have just received my order and felt I wanted to compliment you on the quality of the plants and the way they were packaged; much better than your competitors.

Alex Reed - Google Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

These lovely folk had the unusual rosemary we had been searching for in lovely growth and good price. Feel more than confident to mail order from them in future too. Also, their Rau Ram (vietnamese coriander) has lovely subtle flavour that we'd never tried before . Thanks

Elizabeth Bowyer - Google Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Brilliant selection of herbs, and truly exceptional customer service. Glowing recommendation for anyone looking to level up their cooking, have their kitchen smell fantastic, or get a unique gift for the green-thumbed chef in their life.
