The Curious Case of the Mint, Sage + Rosemary

13 Apr

Did anyone happen to remove the sage, mint and rosemary plants in three pots near the shed? We’re trying to figure out what happened to them. It looks like they were deliberately emptied and then soil was spread (fairly neatly) over the ground.
These perennial plants have been with since the beginning– they had overwintered for several years. Please email if you saw what happened or have an inkling of what might have befallen the herbs.  It doesn’t look like small children did it; unless perhaps an adult cleaned up after them? Or someone thought the plants were dead and decided to throw them out?

It appears this happened at the end of last week, before this weekend. We’re looking to prevent this type of mishap from happening in the future by investigating all possibilities before we assume the landscapers did it. Thank you for any input!

    Hi Denise,

    Good morning,

    I went to the garden about two weeks ago to pick up a pot, I saw all the herbs pot there. I empty a few flower pots which I put down there and trow them in the trash, because I know it wouldn’t grow back. I didn’t make it Sunday cause I had an emergency. I hope this wouldn’t again.

      Thank you Indra. I appreciate your message. To clarify, do you think you may have accidentally thrown out the sage, mint and rosemary? Or are you saying those three potted herbs were there, in the pots as normal, on the day you visited? Thanks. -Denise
