How to Grow Mint from Seed

Mint is easy to grow and delightfully aromatic, but is often best grown in a pot which has been sunken into the ground to contain its vigorous growth and prevent it’s rampant roots and shoots from taking over the garden.

Mint requires little care and attention, thriving in almost all conditions. However once the plant starts to flower its leaves will stop growing so it is important to remove any flowers as they appear to keep the plant producing leaves through to the autumn.

Pennyroyal, the most common type of mint; Peppermint, with its distinctive cool flavour and Spearmint, traditionally used in mint sauces are the most common types of garden grown mint.

Sow mint seeds indoors into 4 inch pots during early Spring. Germination normally occurs within 10 to 21 days. Prick out the seedlings into 3 inch pots to grow on before potting on for planting out or simply harvest as required.

To harvest simply cut the leaves as required, using a pair of scissors. Cut from the top of the plant to encourage new stems to shoot out from the sides and avoid removing all of the leaves from the plant as this will hamper its growth.
