Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
This hosta, having survived the dangers of the Spring when it first emerged from hibernation has now been subjected to rearguard attack and is being chomped on by an unknown assailant. I have cleared the ground under it and lightly forked it over to see if there are any baddies lurking in the soil until sunset. I also went out with a torch after sunset yesterday but could not discover any villains at their evil work. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help me deal with the problem? It might also be helpful to know that this is the only victim (apart from an Acanthus nearby) all the other Hostas, about 30, are completely undamaged.
