What's eating my burning bush?
I just planted two baby burning bushes a few weeks ago. I went out of town last weekend and when I came back I was horrified to find that something was eating my bushes! Whole branches were gone. It looked as though someone decided to take it upon themselves to prune my bush. But the remains were gone branches and all. This morning I notice my other bush had several of it's branches lying beneath it. Leaves were in tact on most of them and branches were still there. Some of them were even still pathetically hanging off the bush as if someone came by and decided that breaking the branch off was more efficient than shears. It's a gated back yard... so no deer. I occasionally see a rabbit or two in my yard. Never squirrels (but that doesn't mean they don't exist). So.. rabbits and squirrels? How do I get rid of them? Something that's safe for my puppy that likes to chew on the mulch surrounding it. (Of course, I can always keep my puppy away if such things don't exist) Thanks!
