I have some hydrangeas I planted last summer and all the leaves on them look like they are getting eaten. What should I do about this?

Caterpillars and slugs tend to munch on hydrangea leaves. If you're finding the damage and not the culprit, try going out at night with a flashlight and checking the undersides of the leaves. I think you'll find the pests. You can bait for slugs and snails. Caterpillars might be butterflies or they could be moths. I'd tend to leave them alone, just in case.
