Perfect for beginning gardeners, mint is the easiest of all herbs to grow. These seeds are tiny! There are over 7 million seeds/lb. Peppermint is perennial hardy in zones 4-9. In addition to flavoring food and drinks, it serves as a natural pest deterrent in the vegetable, herb, or flower garden, and chewing the leaves not only freshens the breath but is said to calm an upset stomach.
How to Start: Peppermint seeds are a low percentage germinater, so sow extra! To sow the seeds indoors, place them on top of the Bio Sponge in your Bio Dome, or on top of the medium in your seed flat. Do not cover the seeds; they need light to germinate. They should sprout within 10 to 15 days at room temperature or slightly warmer (68 to 75°F). Transplant into the garden or container when they have at least 2 sets of true leaves. Germination is the hardest part, growing is super easy!
