Hi - I've sown Cosmos Purity from GW, and they were all coming up and had 1 pair of leaves, in the greenhouse.  But today I checked, and about 8 have had their leaves nibbled off, just leaving the stem, some at soil level, some about 1" high. Any ideas what it could be, I wondered about mice?

I go for slugs and snails too, I've had similar things happen last year to mine. They can really do a lot of damage to young seedlings


Yip slugs. I did find my first vine weevil of the year in my coldframe though


Grub or bug?

I'd go with slugs too, that's how my wallflowers are looking at the moment!

Yep....slugs or snails...look under the pots and trays, they hide...they're good at insinuating themselves in the slots of the aluminium struts of the GH...


I sent for my first lot of nemaslug yesterday...take that pesky slugs...
