My daughter’s mint plant is quite particular in its requirements.
First, it wants sun, so you put it on the window ledge. Then it gets too much sun, so you move it to the stoep, where it is mostly in the shade. Then you forget about it, till one day you look in the pot and see this –
Aaagghh! You have killed it!
Oh well, you tried, but with the odd weather lately, it obviously got too much sun and not enough rain. Shame.
After ignoring it for a few weeks, you notice something amazing has happened.
The little plant has regenerated itself.
Yay, the Mint is back!
Now to remember to move it into more shade again, as the temperatures hot up for the approaching summer!
