Hello, something is killing my spearmint and basil plants. Honestly it's completely murdered my basil plant and I've had to throw it out. I've tried treating with a solution of water and Dawn dish soap, but it seemed to make it worse if anything. The leaves get brown patches with black spots in them. Everything I'm reading on the internet says soil blight, but I'm not sure that makes sense as I have an impatient in the same soil as the herbs that is thriving. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry about the photos. They're perfectly clear on my phone, but not coming out when I upload them.

What I can see in the photos looks like maybe some kind of fungus. Were the plants living outside or inside?

Also, there are soil borne diseases that can effect one type of plant but not another type of plant. Are you using garden soil or bagged soil?
