Shasta Daisy

Zone 45011 | Anonymous added on July 4, 2018 | Answered

Not sure if this damage is being caused by a mole or something else. I have a large plot of daisies by the back porch, something has pushed the whole stem, from the dirt, over. It is like the stem has been cut at the bottom, but the root is left in the ground. I am wondering if a mole has pushed over the daisy, but you would think the root would come up too. I am completely puzzled by this. Can you give me some advice, I don't want to lose all my daisies. I have picked up about 20 cut plants so far. Thanks.

If you determine the type of critter causing the damage it can help with eliminating the damage.

Moles and Voles are often found tunneling around garden beds.
