Where do you find Spearmint Leaves?

I want to try Erin's Mojito recipe. Can you buy spearmint leaves at most any store like Kroger or WalMart? I've never looked for them, so I have no clue.

Thanks!

I LOVE Mojitos....I grow my own mint!

You should be able to find it at major groceries where they sell fresh herbs....( parsley, basil, oregano) Krogers, etc.

I found mine at a Natural Food store called Sprouts. You can usually find them at any store that sells fresh herbs. Try the Mojitos, they are great.

TinaM,
You can find mint leaves in most grocery stores in the produce section. They sell it in bunches or small plastic containers. I grow my own. If you are planning on doing this I suggest growing it in a pot to keep it contained. Mint is a very invasive plant and it will take over your whole yard.

Enjoy the Mojitos,
Erin---

I've seen fresh peppermint in most grocery stores but never spearmint...

I grow my own peppermint, but like eko42 said, it is very invasive. Make sure you grow it in a container. Peppermint is probably the easiest plant to grow. I am terrible with plants, but my peppermint is flourishing!
