It does not contain menthol, which is found in peppermint. Unlike those fancy chocolate, pineapple and apple mints, spearmint is an open-pollinated herb that grows true to seed.Spearmint is a rambler that will slowly take over your garden, so it's best grown in a pot or in an area where you don't mind it spreading. Mint has a quite a few uses. It's added to mojitos, mint juleps and Southern sweet tea, it also make a fantastic herbal tea. Mint does wonders for an upset stomach. It's also proven to reduce gas pain and bloating by relaxing the digestive tract. Yay! And if you like Indian food and samosas, you can make your own mint chutney or mint jelly! It's also a nice addition to tabbouleh and salads. Germination Instructions and TipsThis mint is easy to grow. The seeds can be direct sown or planted indoors. Since the seeds are so tiny, I definitely recommended starting them in a small pot, seed-starting pack or tray filled with a nice seed starting mix. Sprinkle the seeds on top of the soil. Do not cover them with dirt since the seeds need light to germinate. You can press them into the soil if you like.Mint seeds have a waxy coating, so keep the soil moist for enhanced germination. The seedlings are fragile because they seeds are so small. These aren't like robust sunflower spouts. They're very sensitive to drying out and will not recover.  I recommend covering your pot with a plastic baggie or using a humidity dome. This step will greatly improve your success. Start your seeds early in the season. Germination occurs in one to two weeks, or sooner if conditions are ideal.This is a perennial herb that is hardy down to zone 4 and can grow more than 2 feet tall.  You will receive 1,000 plus spearmint seeds, which is 1/10 of a gram by weight.Germination rate 81%, tested January 2018.
