portulaca and ice plants problems
I took y'all's advice about heat and drought resistant plants and used portulaca and ice-plants as a border on a far off planting bed. they were doing awesome! I mean, really wonderful, as are the agasthache and the other suggestions I received from this forum.
my problem is this - almost over night the portulaca and ice plants were gone, either cut or nibbled to the dirt! I doubt ( hope ) noone would cut them. The bed is bordering the road and it gets a lot of foot traffic, but it almost looks like a weed whacker was taken to them. the other plants have not been touched so i doubt it was vandals as they would have jacked up all the plants.
so, what would do it, deer? squirrels?
They are growing back, but it looks like they get nibbled back down as soon as they get any length to them. like an inch!
