The Q&A Archives: Something ate my shrubs

Question: After looking around outside to start spring cleanup, I noticed the boxwood, eunonymous, and junipers bushes were chewed to the roots. What do I do now? is there any hope? The few in my back were just planted at last year but the 3 in the front of my house have been there for 6 years. Thanks Lori

Answer: Could be deer or rabbits or some other wildlife. The shrubs should come back later this spring. You might want to place cylinders of chicken wire around them until they have a chance to recover. Once they are growing well you can remove the barriers. Good luck with your garden.
