Peppermint Seeds

SKU: H18

Mint is a hardy perennial that can really be started anytime as long as you're about 2 months before your first Fall frost.  It also grows well indoors, year-round.  


Start them inside in late winter, for your Spring planting, or wait until the soil warms up and sow the seeds directly outside in your garden. It’s best to grow them in pots to keep them from taking over your garden (even if you’re planting in the ground).


When sowing the seeds, do not cover them. They need light to germinate properly and will sprout within 10-15 days if the soil stays around 68 to 75°F.


They are ready to transplant into the garden when they have their second set of "real" leaves.   If you're sowing them directly out into your garden, consider placing a row cover over them until they sprout.
