Basil Burglar...how do I save my herb??
My Basil herb Finally came up. It was coming along rather nicely. A few days ago I realized that there was a couple stems sticking out of the dirt. Something had snipped the basil off right under the leaves and carried the leaves away. My dad said later that he saw a bug in the planter with the Basil, but he was unable to identify the bug. I did have quite a few little basil plants started. Since a couple days ago, I am left with only 2 baby Basil plants. Tonight they may disappear.
Do any of you know what bug this could be? How do I save my Basil?
The herb was planted in a planter. It wasn't even in the ground.
Please help. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
