When can I plant mint seeds?

Sowing Seed Indoors:
  1. Sow mint seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost in spring using a seed starting kit.
  2. Sow seeds ¼ inches deep in seed-starting formula.
  3. Keep the soil moist at 70 degrees F.
  4. Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.

Similarly, you may ask, how long does it take for a mint seed to sprout?

Do not cover the seeds; they need light to germinate. They should sprout within 10 to 15 days at room temperature or slightly warmer (68 to 75°F). Transplant into the garden or container when they have at least 2 sets of true leaves.

How long does it take for Mint to spread?

Growing at 4 inches per month, a single plant would spread to 2 feet in about six months. However, as the rhizomes creep away from the original plant, new plants are created, increasing the size of the mint area. Spearmint, which is more vigorous than peppermint, has an even faster growth/spread rate.
