Am looking forward to being part of the community.
Am in Mid East Scotland, and recently planted a ( pink) DIY- store Anemone de Caen ( I think) only to find after about a week that one night something had neatly snipped the larger flower stalks, and leaves away completely. Only the thickest parts of stalks remained, almost neatly piled to the side!
My 4YO son completely denies culpability, and I believe him. The cuts looked so neat I was about to quiz next-door's son of similar age!
My mum mentioned wood pigeons eating things other creatures would fine unpalatable, but I've seen little other pigeon damage yet this year and the other anemone planted at same time (blue) 15 feet away is untouched.
??? Am perplexed.
A monster slug with secateurs ?
Thanks for any ideas.
