Mint Seed Starting Kit (Ceramic Pots)
If you celebrate the weekend with mojitos or enjoy a glass of refreshing iced tea, you’ll love the convenience of growing your own mint—with Bonnie Plants® Mint Seed Starting Kit! The kit includes a pretty pot, soil, non-GMO spearmint seeds, and easy-to-follow growing instructions. Just fill the pot with soil, sprinkle the seeds on top, press them into the soil, water well, place in a warm spot under light—and soon, you’ll see adorable mint seedlings appear!
Make sure to keep the soil moist (but not soggy) as your mint grows. The drainage hole in the bottom of the pot helps prevent overwatering. If the pot becomes overcrowded, gently remove a few seedlings. Mint seedlings need 6 to 8 hours of sun, but the mature plant tolerates part-shade. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, and feed with a liquid fertilizer two weeks after the seeds sprout. Mint seeds typically germinate in 10 to 15 days and will be ready to harvest in 90 days. Use the seed kit indoors year round or grow mint outside when the danger of frost has passed. You’ll love the satisfaction of growing mint from seed!Read More

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
