Botanical mint, which is most closely aligned in flavour to peppermint, is a fast growing aromatic herb belonging to the Mentha family. Due to its prolific growth habits the plant is quick to become root bound in small pots – which will strangle its health – and so growing in larger pots is recommended.

When to Plant

Zone 1: September – April
Zone 2: September – May
Zone 3: Anytime
Zone 4: Anytime

Soil  It will grow in a wide range of soil conditions from free draining to damp. Make sure to integrate with plenty of compost and look to feed one a month with seaweed extract

How to Plant  Sow directly into a container and let it germinate and establish there, as mint can be invasive and a bit of a bully. Plant at least two seeds in each hole and keep moist until germinated.

Position  Full sun to shaded, it will survive and thrive in most light conditions.

Spacing  30cm

Depth  0 – 1cm

Companion Plants  Tomatoes & Cabbage, but best to grow alongside in its own container.

Approximate no. of seeds  250-300

Note: We source all of our seeds locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination

**SHIPPING – Not to Western Australia**
