Do birds destroy tender plants?
My cantaloupe, rose moss, aloe vera and Depot potato plants are just about 5" high and have been cut about 2 1/2" above the ground and gone! Don't know what it is. I have covered the holes against rabbits. Could it be birds?
There can be numerous critters that eat tender seedlings, from mice, rabbits, birds, squirrels or even slugs.
