Something is eating my chives.

Thanks for those replies, I have two clumps, one as yet untouched, so I was wondering if I could just put some sharp grit round, do you think that would keep the snails out?

Just been out with a torch (ten p.m.) and you were right, there was a snail climbing up my chives!  So annoyed as they provide a pretty splash of colour which I can see from my kitchen.  Well they did.  Thanks for all the helpful answers Lazy Gardener, Blairs and Dove from Above

Thanks for the replies, I don't think it is slugs/snails as there is no evidence of slime/trails, but nearly all the heads have gone from a clump of chives.  We do get pigeons, but there is plenty of food for them... Wondered if it could be small caterpiller/aphid type thing?  Any suggestions for repelling???

I grow chives as much for their pretty purple flowers as for their culinary use.  Now I find that many of the heads have been eaten away, leaving just a green stem with a nibbled edge. I can't see any sign of anything, I would really appreciate a suggestion as to what I can do about this.  My allium buds, at the opposite side of my garden, have also been attacked.
