Growing instructions: Seeds can be started indoors or sown directly in the garden. Sprinkle the seeds on your starting mix (or garden soil after last frost). Do NOT cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate. Keep moist. Peppermint prefers a moist soil, with partial shade. Germination in 10-15 days.
