I’m in East Vancouver BC.
Some creature has stripped the leaves off of my basil plant!
Just the stems remain.
Any clue?
It looks as if it was harvested.

Unless you can see signs of droppings, footprints, insect parts, or other signs, you may not be able to find the exact culprit.

If you can find evidence of whatever it is, then you can snap a few pictures and send them in here. Then we can begin to find out what it is that has destroyed your basil.
