Garden help: Pill bugs killing my new plants
We moved into an old rental house on a very neglected piece of land. I have started gardening/planting for the first time somewhat unsuccessfully.
I did a little research about the trees we have in the front & read they are very invasive and after a lot of digging, I noticed the roots of the roses are also EVERYwhere. This is probably why my first round of plants were dying. So I dug them out before they were completely gone & put them in planters.
However, I think my biggest problem is those darn rolly pollies/pill bugs & snails! It's mostly the rolly pollies! I have never seen so many in my life! I believe infestation is the proper word.
I dug my plants out & put them in planters (they were store bought perennials, already grown). Only some have survived.
I have now started growing new things from my kitchen (garlic, rosemary, etc). I waited until I felt they were strong enough but then they started dying. So I attempted to put them in the ground again. I prepped the ground with diatomaceous earth but the darn things are still all over the place.

My perennials never come back for a second year, and it's getting really expensive to buy perennials that last only one year.
