Overview

Mint is a perennial herb with fragrant, toothed leaves that have a fruity, aromatic taste. Mint traditionally complements lamb and poultry. It is widely used in Middle Eastern and Greek dishes, including salads, side dishes, and sauces. Fresh mint is a favorite for herbal tea.


Conditions

For soil, use a fertile well-draining potting mix that’s tailored for vegetables and herbs. For the best quality leaves, provide full sun (6 or more hours of direct sunlight) and consistent moisture (don’t let the topsoil become dry to the touch).


Planting

Use our grow calendar tool to find specific dates for your region! Seeds germinate in 7-14 days.

Transplant (recommended): Start in containers 6-8 weeks before setting out in early spring. Sow seeds on top of the growing medium, gently pressing them into the soil mix. Do not fully cover, as the seeds require light to germinate. Keep moist to germinate. When 3-4" tall, transplant outside, spacing plants 18" apart.


Care

Pinch off the top sets of leaves regularly starting at the seedling stage for a bushier plant. Grow mint in containers, as it spreads very quickly if not properly contained. Water deeply when soil begins to dry. To prevent the spread of leaf diseases, water the soil and not the foliage. Before winter, cut back plants to the ground for healthier plants the subsequent year.


Harvest

Pick mint regularly to encourage plant production. Pick leaves as needed once the plants are established. If harvesting the entire plant, wait until just before flowering. Mint’s flavor is best when fresh, but it can be stored dried.
