Severe animal damage this winter...
At our home as well as neighbors and even friends in towns up to 30 miles away there was a carnage of the rhodies. Don't know which critter was responsible, but ALL (I mean every single leaf) on my 4 brand new good looking, well taken rhodies got munched right off.
I have read that waiting for flowering then pruning is a good idea, but.... there will be NOTHING on these bushes!
The stems are still green, so I think the little guys are alive. Yesterday I spotted ONE bud on one stem, so I have some hope!
What is the best approach- how much, when?
