Mint Growing Instructions Print

Mint


Sow indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow in April/May. Seeds should sprout in 10-16 days. Bottom heat will speed germination.
Exposure: Full sun to partial shade
Sow seeds no more than 5mm (ΒΌ") deep in moist soil. Space plants 45-60cm (18-24") apart.
Peppermint spreads in the garden with gusto via a vigorous root system, so it may be better to confine it to planters on the balcony. Prune plants back hard in early summer to promote good top growth.
