    Mildew. Mint is very susceptible. Cut the old stems down.

  • Ok thanks I will do it today

  • Ok so I have cut lots of it off, my questions are

    1. is the mildew mint ok for human consumption?

    2. how can I dry it out and store it if it is?

     

    thanks

    Mildewed plants tend to smell musty.  I'd trust your nose on that one, but I don't think I'd eat the mildewed bits myself.
