Mint dies suddenly

Megan Easely
6 years ago

Hello,

I live in Houston Texas. I'm a gardening newbie but I've been growing mint in a hanging pot for almost two years.

Recently, the mint suddenly died. The soil around it appeared really dry despite watering it a few days prior and the leaves were almost black. The entire plant died within a matter of a day or two.

I lifted the plant out of the pot to examine the roots and they appeared healthy. However, I noticed a cluster of ants with eggs at the bottom of the pot. The ants have now taken over the whole pot.

I've read a few forums stating ants do not kill plants but the events are so closely linked, I'm not convinced. Can anyone offer some insight?

Many thanks,

Megan
