Normally they go for my daffodils but one little blighter this year has been decimating the crocosmia. He chomps through the stem like a lumberjack then digs out the top corm, peels off the outer skin then, to add insult to injury, digs a hole in the lawn and hides it.
At first I found it amusing but he has now felled almost every stem in three different locations. He doesn't touch previous year's corms, just the current one so it seems likely there will be big gaps in the autumn border next year.
Apart from squirrel pie any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated.
