Countless beneficial insects are absolutely enchanted by mint, while many pesky garden pests are repulsed by it. Growing mint from seed is a lesson in the beauty of chaos in the natural world, as the busy activity of insect pollinators causes a wide spectrum of mint flavors. We love the element of surprise in growing mint from seed. While the flavors may range from spearmint to peppermint or applemint, the purported medicinal and pest-repelling benefits remain the same. Perennial from zones 4-9, mint will thrive in most gardens. It is quite competitive and belongs in the herb bed or in a contained location. Many folks simply clip the leaves and use them as mulch around plants in the vegetable garden to harness the pest-repelling benefits without letting this aggressive plant grow in the vegetable garden.

Mint is easy to cultivate and has a wide variety of culinary and medicinal uses. It can be used in any savory dish that calls for mint and is perfect in sweet dishes and in teas for cleansing the palate and re-energizing the body after a meal.

As a general rule, mint family plants root vigorously when allowed to grow freely and can be invasive. Grow them in containers to keep them in check.
Sweetly aromatic, mint, can be used in both cooking and in potpourri and other fragrant decorative items. Mint herb is used to make mint jellies and sauces and of course, tea! Spearmint also has medicinal benefits as well. It is a wonderful addition to the garden that can easily be started with mint herb seeds.

This perennial herb grows to 3 feet tall and spreads rapidly to indefinite widths. The 2 - 3 1/2 inch lance-shaped leaves are a unique wrinkled texture. Oblong terminal spikes of lavender-pink flowers appear all summer. Like other mints, mint plants are extremely easy to grow. In fact, they grow so well, it is best to confine them to containers.

How To Grow mint From Herb Seeds: Start mint seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks prior to last spring frost or sow herb seeds directly outdoors in partially shaded, moist, soil. Sow the herb seeds only 1/8 inch deep in loose soil. Transplant the mint seedlings when they reach 2 inches tall. Harvest leaves when the mint herb plant reaches 12 inches tall. Pick the larger outside leaves as the plant grows to encourage more leaf growth. Young leaves and stems have the best flavor. Dry mint leaves on trays or by hanging bunched branches upside down in a warm, dark, well-ventilated area. Fresh leaves are easy to freeze too.

Every three years mint plants should be divided and re-potted in fresh soil and compost to maintain healthy growth. The plants are hardy and will die back to the ground in winter. Top dress with compost in autumn if the plants are not lifted annually.
