Critters eating my salvia!

kentstar(5b, NE Ohio)May 1, 2011

All my May Night salvia's seem to be munched on :(

What kinds of critters like to eat salvias?

Can I do anything to protect against this? Maybe put fencing around? I hate to do that but I need to stop the munching. This is their second year in my garden and I had no problems last year with munching critters.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The other one is a Deer most of time deer leve Salvias
alone but they can do test nibles.
