What the hell is eating my basil plants? Whatever it is is stripping an entire plant of all leaves overnight. Interestingly when I have purple and green basil in the same pot it only eats the green and does not touch the purple.
In the surrounding pots I have various chillis, mint, oregano and asian mint and aside from an occassional nibble on a chilli leaf they are completely untouched. Originally I thought snails or slugs but I have been out at night with a torch and have not spotted a single slimy sucker and there are no trails leading to the pots.
I am at a loss. Any of you riot-gardeners have any ideas of what it is…and how to stop it?
