Growing Mint, also Garden mint

View the Mint page

22 Feb 14 Rhonda (Australia - temperate climate)
I have been growing mint in a Grow Bag and it's flourishing but there are strange little silver-white streaks on most of the older leaves. I pick the good, young leaves but would love to know what is causing this. It doesn't look like a fungus. My local nurseryman says he thinks it's some sort of insect. Any organic solutions?
