What's this on my mint?

22 Jun 2012

I think this happened last year too, and went away in a few weeks. I was all set to make mint tea, but the spots are a little gross. (I don’t think they’re eggs, but still…)

It’s on both the spearmint and the peppermint, which are both growing in the pond border garden.

If someone knows how to get my pretty mint leaves back, aside from just waiting for it to clear up, please let me know.

Anthracnose or septoria leaf spot?

Posted on 25 Jun 12 (about 3 years ago)

I don’t think it’s anthracnose, as the spots aren’t enlarging, maybe septoria leaf spot, though as it does sort of look like the photos of it on tomatoes.

Could this be due to more-than-usual-or-necessary rain? I have it on my two variegated wigelias…..or maybe I should take a closer look to be sure.

The circular shape of the spots suggests some sort of fungus, but that’s the best I can do.
