Hi, this is my first question because I've only just found your website. Could you tell my why my mint plant has turned purple since re-potting in fresh compost this spring, I grow it in a container



MIght be a result of the recent colder weather, which came as a shock to lots of plants after the unseasonal warm weather in April. Welcome to GoY too.

My guess would be the recent cold nights.
