Platycodon stems being eaten

shelleyh(z5 NY)July 30, 2011

I have several platycodon around my garden but there is one that, every year, the bottom of the stems get, I think, eaten

so that the whole stem dies and pulls out of the ground. It has a rough looking cut not a clean incisor bite. Any ideas?

From underground? Voles.

I think you may be right. It could be voles.
