I was worried when I read some of the reviews on peppermint, however spearmint worked really well for me. The seed packet was one I'd purchased from Park Seed about 2 years ago and had been in climate controlled storage, so I wasn't sure what my chance of success would be. I used a seed starter kit for the AeroGarden Sprout LED. The seeds were really tiny and hard to work with, but I tried to get 4 seeds to a seed starter plug. From 15 plugs I had 14 plugs with at least 1 seed sprouted, some had all 4 seeds sprouted.. The earliest sprout emerged on day 7, with the 14th plug waiting until day 19. I've now begun transplanting the larger seedlings into potting soil. Looking forward to harvest time to quality test the flavor of this spearmint.
