My winter pansy flowers are being eaten - there are tiny holes all over the flowers and finally they are completely eaten away.  Does anyone know what is causing this and what I can do to prevent it, please?

First things first! give your plants a once over, looking under the leaves,cast your eyes over the soil,you never know what has taken up home there.sometimes birds can take a liking to what may be hiding under leaves, so may be the ones doing the damage.

Slugs and snails are the most likely culprits. Is it mild where you are? The slugs are still active in my garden, but luckily, so are the frogs!

I find slugs eating mine all the time and it sounds like them. Go out when it is dark with a torch and pick them off and kill them.
