Leggy mint and droopy parsley

RoseVillaRoseVilla Posts: 28
With the mint advice online seems to be pruning and repotting. Shall I just give it a good all over trim including the long trailing bits? How short?

do you think the parsley just needs a bigger pot and I should trim off the droopy bits?

    You can just chop the mint down and it will regrow. The parsley prefers shade and lots of water and might do better re-potted in a bigger pot.  You can just chop off the droopy bits for salads etc. I am not inclined to use the peat free compost as I find it very difficult to keep moist enough for potted plants.

    The best way to keep mint looking good is to keep picking it.
