Nope, definately not that 

Help! White patches on mint again

Posted: 22/07/2016 at 12:12

Only planted this 2 weeks ago, in a pot, and it now has white spots all over it. Does anyone know what this can be? It seems to happen to every single mint plant I have ever tried to grow, whether in a pot or in the ground    There is no sign of insect infestation and underside of leaves look same. It is also being eaten by slugs (grr) which I assume is unrelated.

I thought mint was meant to be easy!!

I agree with Linaria, purple toad flax. But yes the rest of plant would help!

Can you post a pic perchance ? Sounds like some sort of rot.

EM you could probably get away with cutting back the leaves after they fade. Youre not supposed to as the brown leaves send the nutrients down for next time, but they are so robust to be honest it would be worth a shot.

Blanket weed is a pest, but the more critters you have in the pond the more it will all start to balance out. I find the daphnia do a good job of eating the blanket weed, as do tadpoles. 

Wendy thats such a pretty planter tub pond. 

Esspee, i wondred the same with our tadpoles, but ive noticed that as soon as they get legs and are abke to get out of the water they go and hide in the grass or flowerbeds, i guess so they are less vulnerable to predators hanging around the pond. So yiurs might just be hiding Until theyre bigger. 

How to solve your snail problems

gardeningfantic, that would be ideal but as others have said previously, the birds and frogs seem to have little interest in eating them. And anyway I'm sure there are thousands more that I don't manage to catch for them to dine on!
