Sowing & Spacing:
Sow seeds thinly in a seed tray almost filed with moist compost. Lightly cover them with some more compost. Place in the warmth, but shaded from direct sunlight, and keep them moist. Transplant 3-4 seedlings per 8cm pot when big enough to handle. Harden off for 2-3 weeks before planting out from April onwards.
Space plants 30cm apart.
Sow from February to May.
Note: Mint is more suited to container growing as the vigorous root system spreads rapidly throughout the garden if left unchecked and will suffocate other plants. Plant in a container without other plants.
