The best way to propagate mints is by taking cuttings from those that you like best. It’s easy—take 6-inch cuttings of rooted stems and plant them horizontally in the soil. Mint stems will also root in a glass of water. Start with a small cutting from an established plant.
To sow the seeds indoors, place them on top of the medium in your seed flat. Do not cover the seeds; they need light to germinate. They should sprout within 10 to 15 days at room temperature or slightly warmer (68 to 75°F). Transplant into the garden or container when they have at least 2 sets of true leaves.

Sow the safflower seeds 1 to 1 1/2 inches deep in rows 6 to 10 inches apart when the soil temperature is at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit, in April or May. Expect the seedlings to emerge from the soil in one to three weeks.
