Every now and then a plant just can't make it. Even a herb?

I have several mint plants. All in really large pots. I have a spearmint, chocolate mint and pineapple mint. It is the pineapple mint that just can't make it. It has been limping along since year one. I am throwing in the towel. I give up.

Pineapple Mint? Who needs Pineapple Mint? I can't imagine that it is nice even at its best. In my opinion, mint is designed to be "minty" if you know what I mean. Most of mine is Moroccan mint, which is very flavourful and very vigorous. We use a lot of it in the kitchen.

Wow - that is some healthy moss you are growing in that third pot! (=

Good point Mark. I actually grew it because I smelled it and realized that it is the plant my grandmother had in her garden when I was little. She was the most beautiful person to ever live on this planet. So I g ave it WAAAAY more time than I've ever done with anything. But nostalgia or not...gone.

That's for sure hey. What is interesting is the first two are left on the cool (shade) bench all the time. The pineapple mint get a lot of sun. The moss should be in the shady pots, no??
