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 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.
