Plant Spearmint Mentha spicata 1051


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.
