Answer: Without actually seeing them, it's hard to know what might be feasting on your plants, but I'll guess it's night-feeding slugs or snails. Diatomaceous earth will provide some measure of control if you sprinkle it on the soil around the stems of your flowers. Use a thick band so the crawling critters have to travel through at least an inch of the stuff. Diatomaceous earth is the ground up fossilized remains of water-dwelling creatures. The powdered product annoys slugs and snails because it dries up their natural secretions. Hope this helps solve the problem with your plants!
