  1. Hi GG,
    An informative post as usual, after a very long time.
    But GG, mint?!!
    Can it be grown from seed and what are the seeds?
    Would love to try if possible

    • Hi Chitra,

      Mint is actually from cuttings. I added those since they are part of the kitchen and can be used for planting. You are right. we don’t have the seeds in the kitchen… 🙂
