Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Menta spicata- Spearmint, like most other mints, grow easily from seed. Most commonly used as a flavoring, chewing gum, and candies. Sow seeds indoors early spring, 5-6 seeds per plant, in moist soil. Germination occurs 7-10 days Transplant seedlings outdoors when temperatures are 68°-70°. Spearmint can be very invasive, and will do well in containers as it spreads quickly. This minty aromatic herb can be used in teas, iced beverages, and has even been used to soothe upset tummies. Cut outer edges off for use, as to not disturb the growth of the plant. Tip- lightly bruise by tossing in a bowl, add water, and pour into ice trays and freeze, Perfect for those refreshing summer beverages!
