Answer: Mint seeds can be difficult to germinate because most mints produce sterile seeds. That's why root division or cuttings from established plants are the usual methods of mint propagation. You can try again, but if you're unsuccessful, it's because the seeds are not viable. Start with regular seed starting mix and add some sand to provide a very fast-draining growing medium. Sow seeds on the surface of moistened mix and barely cover with additional mix. Viable seeds will germinate in 14-30 days when kept at 60F-65F. Good luck with your seeds!
