English Lamb Mint, Spearmint (Mentha Spicata) 1250 seeds (#1739)

The vigorous herb, spearmint, is a hardy perennial that originates from Europe. It is grown for its wonderfully flavorful and fragrant leaves. Oil of spearmint is used to flavor gum, candy, toothpaste and mouthwash and its dried leaves make a nice medicinal tea. It has been valued for food and medicine since ancient times and was used in Egypt, Greece and Rome.
The clump-forming herbaceous perennial is an aggressive plant that spreads quickly by underground creeping stems called rhizomes. So, plant it only where you want it to spread. Its upright stems are lined with crisp bright green lance-shaped leaves that are highly fragrant. Fragrant spiky whorls of lilac-pink blooms top the leafy stems in summer. These draw bees in droves and are quite attractive.
Spearmint is very easy to grow and adaptable. It thrives in full to partial sun and evenly moist soil with average to good drainage. Because of its aggressive habit, it is best planted in a trough or container. Divide plants every couple of years.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Sow mint seeds in rich compost at a depth of 3-5 mm. Leave 2.5-3 cm of space between seeds. Sow the seeds indoors in early spring and place the pot or seed tray in a warm, light place. Germination can take as long as 20 days.
2. Thin out the seedlings once they are 3 cm tall, keeping the strongest plants. Re-pot the seedlings into individual 10-15 cm pots once they have developed true leaves and are large enough to handle.
3. Plant out mint seedlings into the garden in a sunny or partially shaded spot with moist, rich soil. Grow mint in rows at least 60 cm apart or in pots or large containers placed in a bright location.
4. Water mint plants regularly and never let their soil dry out. Use drip irrigation rather than a sprinkler, as mint plants are prone to fungal attack if their leaves are frequently wet.
