Sow in pots or trays of Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix, and transplant when 5-6cm tall. Planting in pots will contain its vigorous growth.
Best grown in moist soil in semi shade. Add compost and Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone before planting. Protect from snails and slugs. Cut back regularly to promote fresh growth. Peppermint is a perennial, but will die back over Winter in colder areas.
Excellent companion plant for cabbage and tomatoes. To make a peppermint tea add 2 teaspoons of chopped leaves to 1 cup of hot water. Let stand for 5 minutes, strain and sip.
