Answer: There may be a reason you can't find the herb in seed form. Richter's Herbs, a very reputable supplier of herbs reports the following: "Mint seeds have long been misrepresented by the seed trade. Those grown from available seed strains do not match the quality of the cultivated strains, which can only be propagated by cuttings or division." Corsican Mint isn't widely available, so you will probably need to turn to herb sources to obtain it. There is the possibility that this philosophy is also that of others in the herb industry, so you may not be able to procure seed. (I searched far and wide with no luck). If you are interested, you can contact them at 905-640-6641 or visit their website at http://www.richters.com .One of the catalogs I consulted lists Corsican Mint (Mentha requienii) as hardy only in USDA zones 7 to 10; another simply describes it as a tender perennial. Well-Sweep Herb Farm, in Port Murray, New Jersey sells the plants; you might consult them about the plant's hardiness in your area. Their number is 908-852-5390.
