Q.Growing mint

Zone 16748 | Cathy Armacost added on July 21, 2018 | Answered

I have a patch of mint…. It’s got little brown spots over most of the leaves, I don’t know what it is. If I mow the patch over, will it grow back this season?

Yes, It will come back. It is a very vigorous plant. Here in zone 7, we have to watch where we plant it, as it takes over everything and cannot be gotten rid of.

I would also suggest adding dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur to the soil. This will help kill off the infection that I believe the plant has.
