SOmething is eating my dewarf hooly scrubs all the way down to the stems. I son't see anything but all the leaves are gone on about half of the plant. Now they are starting to grow new leaves but I want to kill what ever is doing the damage.

Do you have deer in the area? Sounds like it! Until you can determine just what's feeding on your shrubs you may want to cage them to keep them safe. Just make cylinders out of chicken wire to place over your shrubs. Be sure to anchor them down well and fold over the top to protect the entire shrub. Good luck with your landscape!
