How to Grow Peppermint Culinary Herb from Seed

Peppermint seeds are best if started indoors about 8-10 weeks prior to the final regional frost. Growers in warmer Zone 12 may seed mint directly outside in the fall for winter growth and maturity. When beginning indoors, plant 2-3 peppermint seeds per hole about ¼” deep and allow 7-14 days to germinate. Thin out the strongest seedlings as true leaves begin to emerge, gradually hardening off seedlings before transplanting to the garden.

Mint prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade in warm enough summers. Due to its invasive and wide-spreading nature in the garden, mint is generally recommended to be grown in pots, containers, and garden boxes.

Peppermint Culinary Seeds in the Herb Garden

Non-GMO Peppermint seeds grow as cool perennial herbs reaching 12-18" tall. This minty herb blooms in spring to early summer or fall. Once plants reach maturity, they will develop pointed and pungent green leaves—providing a fresh, cool and minty scent with slight pepper. Peppermint plants continue producing aromatic leaves, before the warm temperatures set it, sending this minty hybrid variety to bloom pink-to-purple flowers, before setting seed.

Although most commonly grown as a summer annual, especially in more cooler northern grow zones, mint is a quickly spreading perennial that is generally found year-round along streams, banks, and many other temperate moist environments.

These roots can be invasive in warm climates where frost does not kill it back.

Harvesting Peppermint Culinary Herb

Mint plants taste best and grow healthiest when routinely harvested and pruned back, as the younger and small leaves always taste better than older, more mature greens. If herbal plants are not harvested regularly they will expend most of their energy trying to produce a higher quantity of vegetative growth rather than higher quality of flavor.

Regardless of variety, mint is one of the fastest spreading and most invasive herbs in the garden and should be pruned often for general upkeep.
