The flowers on my primroses are in a pile around the plant. It looks like something has snipped them off. I have never had this before. What is it?

    There are many possible culprits.

    Are the cuts clean (rabbits - the likely suspect) or jagged (deer)? Are the leaves eaten?

    It could be birds - sparrows in particularly love primrose.

    It could also be insects - any signs of insects on your primrose plants?
