DESCRIPTION

HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS

Planting in Spring is the best for mint. As perennials, they need to be started about 2 months before the onset of frost to thrive. If they are to be grown indoors, they may also be started year-round. Put the seeds in the flat of the seedling and cover them with the medium. Covering the seeds will prevent them from germinating. At room temperature or slightly warmer than room temperature, they should sprout in 10 to 15 days. After they have grown two sets of true leaves, transplant them into the garden or container. In the case of outdoor planting, you can sprinkle vermiculite over well-worked soil before sowing the seeds. Consider covering the seeds with a row cover until they sprout if you are sowing directly in the garden.

CARE AFTER GERMINATION 

Mint is perennial and needs very little care. Ensure the soil is lightly moist but not soggy, and keep the flats in a warm location. A cover over the flat can speed germination. Remove it once you see sprouts. The seeds should be hardened off after they have two true sets of leaves, then planted in beds or pots outdoors. Taking potted plants outside to acclimate to outdoor conditions for a week before moving them into the ground is the best way to transplant them. Water new plants regularly. This plant needs between 2.5 and 5 cm of height. The growing season requires approximately one gallon per week of water. Allow the leaves to dry by using drip irrigation or watering in the morning. The wetness of the leaves may result in a fungus infection. Early spring is the best time to apply fertilizer.
