    How to Plant Lemon Mint

    When to Plant Lemon Mint Seeds

    Plant your Lemon Mint seeds in the spring or early fall. If planting for spring, start seeds indoors in later winter.

    Where to Plant Lemon Mint Seeds

    Lemon Mint performs best in full sun or partial shade in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil. Lemon Mint isn't picky when it comes to soil type- it will tolerate poor soils and, it is heat and drought tolerant.

    How to Plant Lemon Mint Seeds

    Sow seeds in small pots. Apply a starter fertilizer solution and water. After the initial watering, only water when soil surface is dry to the touch. Pinch off the tops of the plants several times during the growing season to encourage branching and a bushier growth habit. When the roots fill the container, about 2 months after sowing, they are ready to be transplanted into your garden. Direct sow or transplant seedlings into a sunny, weed-free soil. Space plants 20-30" apart. Irrigate regularly to keep herb seeds moist until germination.

    How to Care for Lemon Mint

    To prevent powdery mildew, be sure to thin out large clumps to improve air circulation around your plants. Deadhead your Lemon Mint plants to prolong bloom time.

Great Product

These turned out great! Don't hesitate to buy them. We planted them in North Texas and had an abundance appear. Good to see so many pollinators flock to them.
