Has anyone else been having trouble with herbs this year? I grow mine in containers - mint, oregano, feverfew etc - and almost all of them have had diseased leaves, poor growth and when the sun finally did arrive last week, scorched leaves. Even the hardy lemon balm that usually survives anything is very spindly and has only a few pathetic leaves. I live in the south of England so the weather has been all over the place with hot weather in March/April, wet and cool from mid May to mid July and then a mini heatwave.
