Description
 

Common Peppermint is a hardy perennial herb that grows 18-24” in runners. Once established this herb can take over and will make an excellent ground cover. If you don’t want this herb to get away from you and take over, then it might be best to grow in pots. The peppermint leaves are commonly used fresh in drinks such as tea, but is also used dried to make tea, candy, and potpourri. NOTE: These seeds are extremely tiny and challenging to work with and are packed in their own separate zip-lock bag inside their envelope.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Start indoors on moist growing media at room temperature (68-75° F). You will sprinkle your seeds onto the moist growing media. DO NOT cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate. A very light layer of vermiculite may be used instead. If you cover the container with some saran wrap to hold in the moisture, then keep a watchful eye out for mold. It’s best to leave them uncovered and spritz them with a sprayer ever-so-often to maintain moisture. Germination should take place within 10-15 days. Wait until the plants have 2 sets of true leaves before transplanting. Peppermint thrives in partial shade outdoors and does well in poor soil. Avoid using fertilizer on mint.
