First our basil seeds got eaten so we planted a basil plant. Then that got almost entirely eaten so yesterday we bougt a brand new plant. This morning I looked at it and already somethign has been at the top leaves and has cut holes into the middle of the leaves....aargh. We've tried the beer to ward off slugs but it hasn't stopped whatever's getting at the basil. I'm a gardening ignoramous, so I have no idea what to do now.
