Where have all the flowers gone? From two 3 year old plants there are only a couple of flowers on each one. I can see where they should be on the tips of the stems but it looks as if they've all been pinched off! Am I feeding a little feathered friend? A neighbours plant is covered in blossom, so I'm very disappointed.
Have you got squirrels. ?
I lost all my camellia flowers to a squirrel, and then the little B started on the magnolia flowers. He seemed to eat the base of the flower only. The petals went all over the floor.
Bullfinches took all the flowers off my winter flowering honeysuckle. They strip the flowers looking for insects.
I do feed the local birds every day, and maybe they think I've laid on flower buds as part of the menu!
