@jep1978 I planted new dahlia bulbs back in late spring & the plants have grown around 10inches tall but something has been eating away at all the leaves ☹️. There's still a while before we'll see buds, but it's upsetting me because it's my first attempt growing these. Any solutions would be great guys 🙏🏼
@RuH I have had the same problem too. There's all sorts of deterrents available, grit on the soil around the base, if you are growing in pots copper tape around the edges. It's not only slugs and snails that like dahlias. Earwigs love to munch dahlias and there are a load of anti Earwig things you could do ranging from pots to catching them to putting Vaseline on the stems. You could always try a garlic spray as well to keep the munch bunch away and habitat to draw in predators like toads.
