Answer: Mints can be difficult to grow deliberately from seed, but they seem to self-sow in the garden quite readily. I've never been able to figure this out! Mint thrives in rich, moist soil, but seems to do almost as well in poor to average dry soil. Full sunshine is an absolute must. If you decide to try again, purchase fresh seeds and sow on the surface of moistened growing medium, just covering with additional soil. Keep the seedbed moist but not soggy wet. (If the soil dries out, the seedlings will die.) Seeds should sprout in 12-16 days when kept at 70F. Good luck with your spearmint!
