Product Details

Product Details

Historically used to treat stomach ailments, Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) has been found in gardens around the world for ages. The toothed, aromatic leaves grow on dark stems that are 12–36″ tall and bear lilac-pink flowers in July–August. Use fresh leaves to flavor cool summer drinks and steep dried leaves for homemade teas. Peppermint spreads readily by underground stems, so choose a site with this in mind, or keep it in check by planting in a large container.

Shipping

Shipping
Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: IDAHO, MINNESOTA, NEVADA, UTAH.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Growing guide

Growing guide

Mints grow well in full sun and average to rich, well-drained soil. For container-grown plants, water when the top 1in of soil is dry. Plants can spread vigorously by underground stems, so choose a location where that won't be a concern, or restrict them by growing in a container or a confined area. Cut down stems in fall. Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) and Spearmint (Mentha spicata) are hardy in Zones 3-7.
