what is eating my coriander? I don't seem to be having any luck with this herb as something eats it. I've put chicken wire aroung the small herb bed but something still manages to eat it! Help!

I have the same problem, what on earth is small enough to get through protective netting and still eat the whole plant in one go?!!!

Snails and slugs will eat an entire plant in a night. Maybe the holes are big enough for them to get through? Tried snail baits?

thanks for your response, yes have snail bait around the pots my herbs are planted in.

Crickets will eat seedlings. Maybe the problem?
