My Clemitis has been chewed, all that is left is the stalks at the bottom, anyone got any idea what it could be?




Very likely our good friend slug

B*******s! lol! Yes, it happens a lot to me too! I tend to use coffee grinds spread liberally around the base as a barrier. There are lots you can try....egg shells, copper rings etc. Good luck, it's a war out there ;)

You can use something like "Sluggo" I also invite the birdies in with a fresh clean bird bath & let them eat breakfast.

Must admit....sluggo has been used here.

Thank You All, I'll get some Sluggo I think, do you think another shoot may come up?

It might but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for...

Is the idea of copper as a slug repellent a myth or does it work? Thanks Shaun

Copper & Slug repellents do work, I have put slug pellets round mine now & the bits that have been chewed are showing signs of re-growth :o))
I have added a photo for you to see the re-growth :o)) x
