How do I prevent my hostas from being eaten
I have three hosta plants that are planted very close. One of the plants appears to be getting eaten by either rabbits or a deer. They have eaten part of the leaves but also just left some chewed off and laying on the ground. The other two plants seem to be left alone. How can I get whatever it is to leave my plant alone? It is right by my front door.
