Mint (Mentha piperita)

A popular versatile herb, mostly known as an ideal accompaniment to lamb. Also great when added to boiled new potatoes and peas. Can help aid indigestion.

Indoor Planting:

Sow seeds on top of soil in trays of moist compost, do not cover the seeds. Be careful not to over-water. Cover with polythene and store in a warm place at an approx. temperature of 21-24 degrees C (70-75 degrees F). Remove the polythene once germination starts. 

Growing On:

When the seedlings are strong enough to handle they can be transplanted into bigger pots or trays. Do not overcrowd the plants and keep in a warm, light position. Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted direct into your desired location. Harden off first. 

Outdoor Planting:

Sow seeds 0.5cm deep direct in growing bed. Keep the soil moist, and be careful not to over-water. When large enough to handle thin to 12" (30cm).
