The Q&A Archives: Something is eating Crocus

Question: An animal is eating my crocus plants. What might it be and how can I prevent this from happening again?

Thank you

Answer: Rabbits and slugs or snails can do damage to crocus leaves. Look for slimy trails around the plants. If you find some, an iron based slug repellant such as Sluggo should work. If you can't find evidence of slugs or snails, then rabbits are the likely culprits. In this case, spray the plants with Deer Away or some other repellent that contains Bitrex. Good luck with your garden!
