How to Grow Mexican Mint from Seed
# 1 | Start your mexican mint indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring, sow your Mexican mint in a flat 1/4" deep and 1" apart. Keep the temperature near 70-75 degrees F until germination. Make sure you provide bright light but not direct sun. Keep the planting soil moist, but make sure drainage is adequate.
# 2 | Your mexican mint seeds will germinate in 10-20 days. When the second set of leaves emerge, transplant your seedlings into individual pots.
# 3 | A week before planting your Brandywine tomato seedlings outside, begin exposing them to the weather during the day to harden them off.
