Mint – Spearmint (Mentha spicata)

Mint seeds are very small; sprinkle a pinch into a compostable pot indoors with moist soil, cover with a very light layer of soil or vermiculite and place in a warm and sunny spot. Germination can be erratic and may take 1-2 weeks or a few weeks. Once ready for potting outdoors (a good few leaves should mark their readiness) harden them off and transplant into a container. Mint grows very easily and will spread quickly.
