Q.What’s eating my flowers?
I recently planted some marigolds, (the small starter size) and within 2-3 days, something had eaten all the leaves. Whatever it is then started in on the petunia leaves – the other starter set that I had just planted. Any ideas what is eating these plants? We have a lot of snails in our yard and also rabbits in our area – though we have installed extra fencing to keep them out and I don’t see any droppings. (We also checked the fencing and blocked a few possible entry points.) I have now put out snail bait but I’m hesitant to replant before I know what I’m battling! Any ideas?
