Got home from work today to discover my landlord has killed my potted plants. He had the landscapers spray some stuff on the overgrown mint, and it contaminated my plants. I don’t know what he had sprayed; but the mint looks burnt, and touching around the area causes a tingly, irritating sensation on my hands.
Some of my plants were ‘burnt’, and are wilting badly. Others are just wilting. Given that I don’t know what was sprayed by them I don’t think they are safe to use even if they do survive.
Normally he has the landscapers butcher the mint with a weed wacker when they get too overgrown. Don’t know why they did this in this way this time. I am probably going to have to start all over again. Don’t even know if the potting dirt is safe, or if I should dump it.
My heart is broken. Its a small matter, but I am very upset.
