Mint has got to be one of our favourite crops at Limitless Growth. Usually, we recommend purchasing seedlings at a local nursery as starting from seed can be difficult, but if you’re up for the challenge then here’s a guide for you.
The benefits of starting from a seedling is that you only need one plant to have unlimited mint. You also get some amazing varieties at your local nursery compared to seeds. Once you plant your seedling there is minimal attention needed. It’s best to set aside a separate container because mint will take over your garden and lawn if you allow it to. You can start one little seedling in a 4×4 bed, forget about it, then the next year your entire bed will be full of mint.
Some of our favourite mints include:
Mojito Mint – Did somebody say MOJITO! Get your blender ready with some ice and blend in your mojito mint to create some delicious mojitos!
Chocolate Mint – This is bound to hit that chocolate craving you’ve been having! Add to smoothies or just eat the leave off the plant!
