NEW FOR 2022!
Spearmint - Mentha spicata - Perennial
Spearmint can be direct sown in place in the spring or started indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Plant the seed 1/16-1/8 inch. Plant in place as all mints will spread by the roots and make a wonderful stand. Plants can grow to 3'. Soft, lavender flower spikes shoot up from the dark green, crinkled leaves. It needs moisture to thrive but prefers well draining soils.
Spearmint has a sweetness to it and has been beloved for generations as tea, food and medicine. Add this to your kitchen garden - a must have.
