Mint - Marvelous Mix

This is perhaps the most powerful perennial to invite into your landscape. Countless beneficial insects are absolutely enchanted by mint, while many pesky garden pests are repulsed by it. Growing mint from seed is a lesson in the beauty of chaos in the natural world, as the busy activity of insect pollinators causes a wide spectrum of mint flavors. We love the element of surprise in growing mint from seed. While the flavors may range from spearmint to peppermint or applemint, the purported medicinal and pest repelling benefits remain the same. Perennial from zones 4-9, mint will thrive in most gardens. It is quite competitive and belongs in the herb bed or in a contained location. Many folks simply clip the leaves and use as mulch around plants in the vegetable garden to harness the pest repelling benefits without letting this aggressive plant grow in the vegetable garden.

What are the pros? Surprising

What are the cons? Slow to start

Review:

The package came overpacked due to low germination chances, figured I'd cut my losses and plant about 10, I was about to give up but one popped up. I was pleased with just the one, felt like "yes, I did it". Now all 10 have sprouted to my surprise...I'll let them all grow out and give some away since this may be rare once in a lifetime thing lol. I'm growing them in a greenhouse in my garage and will plant outside when warmer and larger, will edit the review for more info at the end of the season.

What are the pros? rareseeds gave xtra seeds

What are the cons? still low germination

Review:

took about a week to start sprouting but definitely a low germination rate for the amount of seeds planted. i misted them at sun rise and sunset everyday, lightly covered them with a thin layer of seed starting soil and started them inside at a window-sill, no luck. maybe it's my technique? i started a few other types of herbs and they all are full at this point. the mint is still holding up but no where near as much as the others. buying another pack of variety-mint seeds, going to give it another shot :)

What are the pros? tastes great, easy to grow

What are the cons? some types stronger than rest

Review:

So, mint is supposed to be unkillable, right? Well, I've killed all sorts of mint and finally after a couple years, I have mint! I grow it in the shade, barely water and mercilessly harvest it for tea and syrup.. it's still holding on. I just I could get all the flavors to grow. I think all mine are spearmint. :(

What are the pros? Good price

What are the cons? Slow to start, small seed

Review:

like the description says, this is a mint mix. From the plants I’ve started, I’ve identified 4 definite types: green leaves with reddish stems, green leaves with green stems, fuzzy green leaves, and red/brownish leaves with reddish stems. I’ve enjoyed trying to discern the differences in taste, but I wish more guidance had been given for determining type. The seeds are very very tiny and will need watered underneath or with a spray bottle to avoid toppling the tiny seedlings. Slow to grow immediately after germination but they really seem to take off after they get a few sets of true leaves. I’ll be planting most of them in a bed around my porch so the lawnmower can curb their attempts to take over the world.
