Description
Through sales generated from the National Trust seeds, a minimum of £7,500 will be given to the National Trust to help look after nature, beauty and history for everyone, forever.

Serve fresh home-grown mint with roast lamb, use it to make a refreshing yoghurt dip to accompany curry, add it to side dishes, make sauces or simply use as a decorative garnish on a dessert . With such a multitude of uses, it’s no wonder mint has been such a popular kitchen herb for so long. What’s more, it’s incredibly resilient and easy to grow too. Mint is a perennial herb and will grow back each year. Spreading over the years, you can let it form an established clump in the kitchen garden or keep it neatly in a pot. Wherever you choose to grow it, it’s reliably vigorous and productive. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 100cm (39").

Sowing

Sow mint seeds indoors or under glass from winter to early summer. Sow in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost. Do not cover the seeds with compost. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 21-24C (70-75F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 7 - 16 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise mint plants to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Grow mint on any well drained soil in full sun or partial shade at a distance of 30cm (12") apart. Alternatively grow mint in containers to control its vigorous growth.

More Info
Once established mint requires little aftercare. Harvest mint leaves before the flowers develop and use them fresh, dried or frozen. Cut back the old stems in autumn and repot container-grown plants annually in spring.
