Here is a photo, i hope it uploaded, first time posting photo. I just notice this yesterday what can I use to protect it from being eaten all up? thanks for your help.
Some of it looks like slugs and snail damage. The V notch bites on some leaves can also be from birds this time of year. Grasshoppers is another possibility although it is early for them.
I did see a bird picking at it, also have seen grasshoppers in my yard. If its slugs or snail what can i use to stop them? Thanks. Here is another photo.
Last pic really looks like slugs. This time of year they are very small and difficult to see unless you go out at night with a flashlight.
There are any number of slug and snail pesticide baits on the market, some organic, some not but most are jusy iron phosphate. Sluggo is one brand name.
Plus there are all sorts of tips and tricks for controls ranging from beer and/or board traps to copper wire/tape to crushed egg shells on the soil surface to the good old flashlight and a salt shaker to sprinkle them with (works well for containers or small beds).
