11 Easy tips about growing healthy Mint at Home

2. Planting

Sow seeds in late spring and make sure the soil will be moist. Plants should reach harvestable size in about 2 months. Cuttings of mint also root very easily. Mint thrives best in deep moist soil with a slightly acidic pH around 6.5. Cover the soil with a little mulch and in mid-season use an organic fertilizer if needed.

3. When to grow it

The best time to plant your mint is in the spring, or it could also be in the fall if you live in the environment free of frost. This fragrant herb is perennial and extremely resilient but it is still recommended to ensure optimal conditions while start growing it. Mint will be one of the first plants to arrive each season.
