MINT in a pot. It's been healthy all year & now it is struggling & the leaves are smaller. The pot size is fine I think. It was in the shade & I moved it when we extended the patio so now it gets morning sun. What should I do & where should I put the pot ( which is stone ). Thank you.



If its in a big enough pot and its not pot bound? could it be shortage of water? If not, it might be just getting ready for winter?
I have mine in a pot and repot every 2 years as it gets to dense. I notice if I dont water enough the leaves are smaller.

Thank you. I will give it more water this week & look for improvement. I will re-pot later in the year.

I repot in the spring and watch it take off. Dont forget you could freeze some before it dies down.
