Mint, Corsican (Mentha requienii), packet of 100 seeds

(2 customer reviews)


Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 10

(Corsican Mint)  Perennial creeping groundcover to 2 inches, native to Europe.  Mosslike.  When stepped upon, the plants yield with a spongy niceness, remain undamaged, and meanwhile emit a pure spearmint aroma.  Traditional usage of the fresh or dried leaves (TWM):  flavoring agent, aromatherapy, digestive tea, non-caffeine stimulant.  Plant prefers part shade to sun, tolerant of many soil types but often planted into sandy soil between stepstones or in rock gardens, where it roots in and drapes.  Seed is very tiny and may be mixed with sand to afford even application.  Strew on surface of flat and press in securely, then keep evenly moist, in the light, and cool to warm.  Germination in 5 to 10 days.  Grow very fine seedlings on for some time, then transplant as clumps into small pots, and when they have spread sufficiently to cover the surface of the pot, transplant out to the garden, pathway or rockery.  Space plants 1 foot apart.  They relish crowding.

100 seeds per packet, Open-pollinated, untreated, not genetically modified

    Great germination, and they start smelling good right away! Will look great in a fancy flower pot, or planted between stones.
