Am a little late reading the digests, so apologies if this is a duplication by
now - I am sure it is not the snails! I have found that if snails are
"eating" a plant, although it might *look* healthy, a closer examination will
usually find it has no root system, or is otherwise failing. So don't dump
the poor snails for doing their job!
It may be that you have a variety of snails that does eat plants, but if
you've had them for a while without problems, I don't think so.
