can anyone help me find out what is eating my lavender bushes, I have lovely juicy delphs and lovely other munchy stuff, but they have stripped 2 of my lavender bare and left the other one, all same variety. puzzled



You sure its actually been eaten? Or does it have other symptoms, such as wilting, browning?

There are caterpillars that eat Lavenders, and they eschew most other plants--not spicy enough, I guess! Try going out well after dark with a flashlight, since they work at night.
