I have a mint plant purchased about 4 weeks ago and now it is looking miserable. It has gone all spindly and noticed it has a red brown tinge on the leaves. What is this and what do I do to get it back to its original look. I have it in a pot as I was told it spreads easily through the vegetable garden

Is your mint in sun or shade. They do better in the sun/part shade away from midday heat, in moist, rich soil. The rusty red colour you are describing is mint rust which occurs when the weather is humid, or they get too dry or otherwise stressed. Keep plant cut back helps, but it usually necessary to take a tip cutting and establish else where in another pot. Liquid seaweed as a foliar feed and adequate moisture in summer are helpful.
