Spearmint whose name comes from Greek mythology has continued since that distant time to figure prominently in the books of kitchens and pharmacopoeia.
Spearmint is to discover on strawberries or pineapple to which she brings a real freshness. It is also ideal to accompany summer barbecues.
1. Sowing: Sow from February to July in pots or planters placed in sunny exposure and tamp the soil.
2. Transplanting: In the fall, replant the more vigorous plants still in pots.
3. Harvest: Harvest the leaves throughout the year. You can grow peppermint directly in your garden in a shady location.
Spearmint likes the proximity of cabbage because it promotes growth and enhances its flavor.
