Last year something thing ate my roses. Not just nibbled round the edges, but all the buds were chopped off clean, and the leaves gone or seriously demolished from the bud stalks down the stem.

It was all wet and sluggy last year so I thought it would be OK now. I just got back after 3 weeks away and it's happened again - but not so bad - yet. I thought that having placed a membrane and bark underneath the plants would have put slugs off.

I've had a careful look, and can't see slugs, aphids or anything else on the plants. Does this sound like slug/snail damage? I've put slug pellets down now - but I'm not convinced I have the right culprit. Maybe I should spray the plants with something too?
