When it comes to peppermint, we all think of it. Peppermint is something we can see and eat often. It can help us to refresh our mind whether we smell it or eat it. Do you know this Mint today? Its plant height is between 100 and 120 cm. Its stem is upright and looks like a quadrangle. Its leaves are relatively thin, and there are a lot of hairs on the opposite side, which are hairy. In addition, when its flowers bloom, the color is light red and purple, which is very good-looking. So how does it sow? Let's have a look.

1. Seed treatment

Before planting seeds, we need to soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours. When soaking, we need to observe whether there are floating seeds on the water surface. If there are any, we need to remove them in time, so that we can make the seedlings grow more orderly.

If we meet some big and hard seeds when collecting seeds, we should cut the seed coat with a knife before sowing, so that the seeds can germinate as soon as possible.

2. sowing

When sowing, we can use the way of sowing or on demand. But if we use the on-demand method, we will save seeds. After the seeds are planted, we need to cover the seeds with a clean substrate. The thickness should be moderate, not too thick

After that, we'll find some fresh-keeping film to cover it on the top of the basin, and we'll put a few holes on it, so that we can keep moisture and breathe. After all these are done, they can be put in a cool and ventilated place, and they will germinate in a short time.

3. Later maintenance

When the buds grow out, we will slowly move them to a brighter place, but we must not directly put them under the sun to prevent them from sunburn. When the height of the seedlings is in contact with the plastic wrap, we should remove the plastic wrap in time.

Then wait until the seedling grows two leaves, then it can be directly exposed to the sun, but it can only be exposed to the sun in the morning and evening to prevent it from growing in vain. At the same time, we will start to add fertilizer to it, basically once a week, and then when the seedlings grow out with more than 5 leaves, we can transplant it into some larger pots
