Description

Mints have been grown for medicinal and culinary purposes for centuries. Thomas Jefferson included “mint” in a list of useful herbs for the garden at Monticello in 1794. The flowers are attractive to pollinators and the plant is deer resistant. A vigorous grower, mint should be planted in a container or given plenty of room to spread.

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date at 72˚F. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after last frost. Approximately 300 seeds per packet.
