1 packet (750 mint seeds) (TT00857)
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.
