Garden mints were first brought to Britain by the Romans, where they naturalized. Seventeenth-century British herbalist Nicholas Culpeper considered spearmint the most useful. It was a popular flavoring for sauces and recommended for headaches, indigestion, and as an antiseptic. Jefferson listed mint for the garden in 1794.

This spreading perennial grows to three feet. Prefers sun and light, moist loam. Sow seeds indoors in sterile, seed-starting mix. USDA Zones 5-10.

Approximately 450 seeds per pack.
