Spearmint ~ easy and indispensible for your summer drinks!
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
Spearmint grows well in nearly all temperate climates. You might want to grow it in containers due to its invasive spreading roots, or just let it naturalize! It prefers partial shade, but can flourish in full sun to mostly shade, and it likes loamy soils with plenty of organic matter.
Spearmint is popular as an ingredient in several mixed drinks, such as the mojito and mint julep. Sweet tea, iced and flavored with spearmint, is a summer tradition in the South.
Wonderful as a tea -- home remedy for stomach ache!
Plant spring through early fall to establish a bed. Water well at first.
NOTE: We will ship in the Spring as early as we have plants available, to warmer locations, then May through early Fall to cooler regions. You can start mint patches in the summer, but be aware that you will need to water copiously!
Our garden seeds, yarns, and nuts make perfect gifts in synergy with our shared goals of environmental protection, sustainability, and food security.
Consider our wide range of heirloom vegetable, herb, and flower seeds as holiday gifts this year ~ grow your own and promote genetic diversity!
