Planting Timelines

    - Mint can be an invasive plant species so choose carefully for your final transplanting location, as it has a tendency to take over
    - You can start mint by sowing seeds in a cell tray or pots indoors during Winter
    - Fill pots or cell trays with compost and press down to firm the soil
    - Take a pinch and sprinkle thinly into each pot or cell
    - Cover the seeds with 0.5cm of compost, pat down and gently water
    - Once seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted to a container or into larger pots
    - Mint plants can be transplanted outdoors from early Spring
    - Harvest mint leaves often, and prune back at the stem when the plant is growing beyond its container
    - Mint will go dormant during the Winter, when it can be a good time to do some pruning
