  • Seeds From Mint

    **** I am forever interested in getting seeds from my own plants and want to know if anyone has a way of collecting seeds from Mint.Idon't know if this will help but the flowers are a light purple and extremely small. The flowers are just starting to grow.

    Any techniques or info is great!!! :D

        You gave me a good laugh!!* :D* I do look like that sometimes, but not from getting you that info!* I answer alot of questions on several forums and have many, many sites saved.* Glad that was helpful.

            Here's a site that will explain winter sowing.* You can sow perennials, biennials, hardy annuals and half hardy annuals.

                  I heard about the floods, are they really as bad as I've heard. ( Which is pretty bad)

                    Yes they were.* Fortunately for me the closest flooding is about 30 minutes away.* The mosquitos are loving it and the weeds in my garden are growing like, well, weeds!* :shock:

                        Ticks can also be a problem.* There are deer ticks that carry Lyme disease. I hope your great grandmother is ok.
