My partner's mother has some verbena in some wall troughs. Last night they were fine but she found that they were stripped down to stalks this morning. Has anyone got any ideas as to what has done this?

Probably slugs/ snails. There are very effective wildlife friendly slug pellets available.

Yes, my bet would also be slugs or snails.   Any sign of their slimy trails?

Could be deer? They keep getting mine .....

No trails but slug pellets were put down last night and a couple of large snails found this morning.
