Every year I plant parsley and cilantro and something eats off the leaves. I have tried planting them in different areas each and the same problem exists. What can I spray them with so they are safe and protected?

    All Natural Spray for Garden Bugs

    1. Cut up and mash the garlic

    2. Place garlic, mint, and hot red peppers in a pan of water and heat almost to a boil.

    3. Remove from the liquid from heat and let sit overnight.

    4. The next morning strain the infusion.

    5. Add a couple tsp of dishwashing liquid and spray the plants. We use 2 squirts of dish detergent per gallon of spray.

    I did this last year with my garden. I only needed to do this once and my garden was free for the rest of the summer. Good luck! Oh and don't be alarmed if you can smell the garlic - that's a good sign.
