Liquorice Mint

Liquorice Mint is an annual herb, but it can also survive mild winters. The flowers, leaves and seeds are edible. 
You can sow as early as May, but instead of sowing directly in your raised bed, we prefer to start the seeds indoors. (The seeds can be reluctant to germinate outdoors, and snails love the seedlings.) When the plants are big enough, you move them outside. The Planty Gardening app gives you step-by-step instructions for pre-sowing in March and April.
