I went for a vacation of 4 days and when I came back I found my Oregano drooping. Before going I watered it very, but, still it didn't work.

Same happened with my mint as well.

Both the plants are not dying.

How can I save them?

Some of the oregano branches looks like they are broken. Should I trim them? I already watered both the plants. Looks like they are doing well till now.

Should I cover them in plastic and put in shade ?

Anyone any help ?

  • How's the humidity? Been a brutal winter for drying leaves here. A water spritzer, or boiling a pot of water may be just the thing. Mar 12 '19 at 15:13

Do not water them too much. They are plant of dry places. They like also sun, but I would not cover them with plastic.

Now just wait some more time. They are perennials, so they should be able to cope with some weeks of distress. Oregano is also a slow plant, so let it to have time to recover. Mint is nearly a weed, you will not get rid of it so easily.

  • We are nearing spring equinox, when day length changes fastest, along with fall equinox. Many plants respond to these changes. Yours may just be gearing up for Spring. Mar 12 '19 at 17:43
