Burpee Herbs 'Mint Spearmint'
This is a vigorous, spreading herb with flavorful leaves that’s easy to grow and perfect for patio containers.
Height: 4-6 in
Perfect for cooking or as a garnish, Spearmint is best fresh, harvested as soon as you see it bloom. Spearmint spreads through its roots, making it difficult to maintain in the garden, so we recommend you grow it in pots. Use its leaves with vegetables and in any summer drink, especially mojitos.
Growing Tips for Homeowners:
Harvest mint leaves before the plant flowers. Cut about half-way down the stalk, leaving smaller shoots in-tact to continue growing. Leaves can be chopped or muddled to release their aroma and oils.
