What's eating my Iris? Having never grown them before I haven't come across this type of damage. Is it caterpillars? I assume it won't flower this year now so should I cut it down?

Thank you.




Molluscs, happens a lot to ours. they should still manage to flower as long as the critter do not eat the buds, which they do here.

Thank you for the replies. I couldn't find any silver trails which is why I thought it was caterpillars. Something has also eaten a single narcissus flower nearby but I suspect that's birds.
