Product information

Category: Herb 
Growing time: 8-12 weeks
Cutting and harvesting: Pinch the top to maintain growth
Package includes: 3 plant capsules + nutrients 

Mint germinates in about ten days. Growth is slow at first, but once it gets going, mint becomes lush. Mint seeds are tiny (0.2 mm), so check, when you insert the mint capsule, that no seeds have become attached to the capsule’s adhesive label.  

Mint must be cut for the first time when it is small, about 5 cm tall. Cut off the top pair of leaves. When mint is taller, it enjoys being prunedencouraging greater growth. From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. The plant can be cut a lot at once, as long as a few pairs of leaves remain under the cutting point. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest.
