Whats eaten my Bergenia?
My poor bergenia had loads of flowers about to emerge a couple of days ago, noticed today every single flower has been eaten, been growing here for years and never happened before, could it be pigeons? this is all that remains :-(

On plant Bergenia




That's strange..I know rabbits used to eat mine, now that they cannot get in the garden, the flowers are free.
Hope you find out soon, it would be nice to know.... :(((

That's the sort of damage I get from rabbits. The most unlikely things eaten to stumps.

Never got a shotgun when you need one,lol.
Thanks Michaella and Beattie, have had rabbits in the garden in the past haven't seen any for a year or so, looks like they may be back then, used to look like watership down in our garden but this was something they never bothered with, looks like they've got a taste for it now, never touched the leaves though.
