Care Instructions

If you would like to sow this plant directly, try 0.23 inches (0.6 cm) deep with a guideline distance of 11.7 inches (30.0 cm).

Ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant - Spearmint is known for growing to a height of approximately 45.0 cm (that's 1.46 feet in imperial).

Your garden has partial sun light - a dappled sun position will ensure your plant thrives.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (6a) is within the ideal range for Spearmint. The recommended range is between Zone 4 and 10.

Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.5 and 7.0 as Spearmint likes to be in acidic to neutral soil.
