We have a lace cap which hasn't flowered and something seems to be eating at the stem which is putting holes in the stems. Would you have any idea what is causing this, please?

It could be any number of different pests, (slugs, snails or earwigs). I had a problem myself this year, so for me personally, I made a batch of sugar water, (2 cups boiling water to 1/4 cup sugar), let it cool, put it in small containers, (cat food cans work great),and sat the cans next to all my plants, even in my vegetable garden. No more bugs.
