Mint is a perennial herb that thrives in damp, partly shaded environments. Sow in seed trays indoors six weeks before the last frost, or outdoors after the last frost. Once established, mint will grow extensively and can take over a garden bed. In winter, mint will die down and send up new shoots in the spring.
