They are native of humus rich soils in open spots in woods and are easily grown in any humus rich, well-drained, slightly moist soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot.
Mountain Mints are native of open spots in woods and prairies in North America. All have strongly fragrant foliage, which is used for the preparation of herbal teas, and dense terminal clusters of white or rose flowers. Easily cultivated in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow the fine seeds flat on any rich, well drained soil. Do not cover seeds with soil and keep pots in a sunny, protected spot outside. Transplant to the final spot in the garden as soon as plants are strong enough.
