Holes in tulips.
Help! My tulips have got holes in! The flowers I mean, the blooms themselves. It looks like something has been nibbling at them. No sign of any bits munched on the leaves or stems. These are flower nibbles only. I haven't found any caterpillar yet, or any slugs. So I don't know what is doing it. Would anybody have any idea what the likely culprit is? My tulip display in my tiny garden this year is so precious to me. I don't want to forfeit any of it to a little blighter.
With thanks and best wishes, JONATHAN H.
