Korean Mint Seeds
Korean mint is a perennial herb. It grows 3-4 feet tall, and to 2 feet wide with 5-10 cm tall flower spikes. The edible leaves have a sweet anise aroma and flavour. An excellent plant for attracting bees and other pollinators!
The leaves can be used the same way as other mints, whether for preparing a delicious tea or seasoning meats. Medicinally it’s used for treating colds and the flu, relieving fevers, and aiding digestion.
How to Grow Mint From Seed
Mint prefers a moist, sunny location. Korean Mint is perennial and is hardy in zones 6 to 9. Make sure to regularly water during dry periods. If starting indoors, surface sow the seeds and place in a sunny location. For outdoors, very lightly cover the seeds with soil. Keep the soil moist and never let it dry out. The seeds will germinate in approximately 10 to 16 days. For best germination results grow indoors in sterilized garden soil; black earth/peat moss mixture. Transplant outside after risk of frost.
