Planted bedding plants on new garden plot. Look good for a day or so then wilt, die!! Also any seeds planted (cukes, beans) do not come up. Seeds are gone when I look to see if they have germinated. No trace of seeds. No squirrels, or birds.

It could be other small rodents getting the seeds, such as mice or voles.

Never put fertilizer directly in the holes when planting, and flood the area after planting to help collapse any air pockets around the roots.
