Something is eating my lilies. It first chews off the flowers then chews the stem in half then digs up the bulb. What is it and what do I do to stop it?

I'd suspect some critter - either squirrel or rabbit. About the only way to keep them from feasting on your garden plants is to place a barrier between the plants and the creatures. Chicken wire cylinders around your favorite plants should keep them from harm.

Best wishes with your garden.
