Small Eaten Holes in Leaves and Flowers

Anonymous added on June 12, 2015 | Answered

I am noticing small holes being eaten in my petunia petals and echinacea leaves. They have not flowered yet, just planted this spring. I am not sure if I should spray with a chemical or have also heard Epson salt solution or mild soapy water spray. Please advise on best way to prevent insects from eating. Thank you!
