Root of my flowers eaten

Zone ri | nicola0420 added on June 24, 2012 | Answered

Every year I plant flowers in my window boxes, follow all the rules and put crush stone holes in the plastic containers. This year my flower's roots are being eaten and the petunias are not flourishing, others dying. What is happening?

If the roots are being eaten, it sounds like you have a small rodent like a mouse or a vole getting into your containers.
