When to Sow Green Mint Leaves

March to April

Where to Sow

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (¼") deep, in small trays of compost and lightly cover the seeds with a sprinkling of compost , and place at a temperature of 15-20°C .

What to do next

Prick out seedlings individually to 7cm (3") pots, once large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler conditions , then gradually harden off plants in a cold frame begfore planting out after risk of frost has passed. Transplant to final positions 30cm (12in) apart or into larger containers in a semi-shaded part of the garden. Cut the leaves, as required, a few from each plant so that they will regrow quickly. Leaves can be frozen for later use.

Harvest

They can be harvested for at least six months of the year when grown outside.  The leaves at any time. For drying, harvest the leaves before the flowers appear.   It pays to cut the top leaves first, because this will encourage the plant to shoot out again further down the stem. Do not strip the plant of all it's leaves.

Handy Tip

Harvest the leaves before the plants flower. Best planted in containers sunk in the ground to prevent the creeping roots from spreading around the garden.

Uses

Many uses in food and drink! The classic mint for sauce, particularly with lamb, and great when used to flavour peas and new potatoes. For using in drinks, simply add to a glass of water for a refreshing taste, a herbal tea, or in summer, why not add it to your Pimms or a cocktail.
