This year, as every year, i bought a parsley plant, and so far every year it has been eaten by something that seems to just come and cut off the stems just as i would - there is never any left after a couple of weeks. I keep it in a pot on my terrace, in a side of the terrace that has a little less sun (maybe instead of from 10AM to 8PM like the rest of the terrace in the summer, it's got sun maybe till 4 or 5. It's very hot for three or four months. I have snails (used to have slugs, now they all got shells! rather than a metamorphosis, i presume the shelled ones took over) and they're pretty big (walnut sized) and all sorts of bugs i presume - some greyish short ones the size of sunflower seeds, with what looks like many legs, which live in the soil itself, and who knows what else. SOMEONE out there loves parsley as much as i do. Anyone know what i can do, apart from poison it?
