I live in Perth Western australia and would like to grow different and interesting varieties of mint. For example: Chocolate mint, Apple Mint Spearmint Vietnamese Mint any suggestions where I can find these seedlings. or do I have to start them from seed? Thank you, Sophie

You can try at an Asian grocer or vegetable market for the Vietnamese mint seeds- often they will have a small display of Asian veg and herb seeds in packets.

Hi Sophie, You could see whether any online seedling / seed companies in Australia ship to your area. This seems to be the best bet for finding interesting varieties. I was able to order quite a few varieties of mint from Mudbrick Cottage Herb Farm (www.herbcottage.com.au), however unfortunately they are unable to post plants to WA due to quarantine restrictions (I live in Victoria). My order included pineapple mint and variegated apple mint. I just planted them up today, and they smell so good! Early spring is possibly the best time for sourcing mint seedlings, as they die off over winter and re-sprout in spring (although perhaps in WA they re-sprout earlier). All the best with your search!

I think you would have a lot of trouble trying to find seedlings for different mint in one place. Probably have to look at seed selling companies, Boondie Seeds- New Life Seeds - The Seed Collection company and others if you look.
