Peppermint has been used for hundreds of years as a flavoring for culinary dishes, teas, oils, candles, and as a medicine. It is a herbaceous rhizomatous perennial plant, meaning that it spreads rapidly from its fibrous roots.

To sow the seeds indoors, place the seeds on top of the medium in your seed flat. Do not cover the seeds; they need light to germinate. They should sprout within 14 to 21 days at room temperature or slightly warmer (68 to 75°F). Transplant into the garden or container when they have at least 2 sets of true leaves.
To sow the seeds outdoors, place them on top of well-worked soil, then sprinkle a fine layer of vermiculite on top of them. If you are sowing directly into the garden, consider placing a row cover over the seeds until they sprout.
