xan's Mint Care Instructions

Look to ensure a distance 11.7 inches (30.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - cover at a depth of at least 0.23 inches (0.6 cm) deep if you are going to sow this directly in the garden.

Spearmint normally grows to a mature height of 45.0 cm (that's 1.46 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in partial sun light: Spearmint likes a position of dappled sun.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (5b) is within the ideal range for Spearmint. The recommended range is between Zone 4 and 10.

Spearmint requires a soil ph of 6.5 - 7.0 meaning it does best in acidic to neutral soil.

More information about Mint is available in the Folia gardener's wiki. All Mint Care Instructions have been kindly provided by our members.
