Who's munching my peas? We have peas planted in troughs which were next to some unwanted tree seedlings. Something has gobbled up the seedlings and now moved on to the peas.
Any ideas what it might be? And how to combat it please? We haven't seen anything....

probably slug/snail damage. They have had a feast in may veg plot too.

Thanks Seaburngirl, will up the protection....all eco-friendly. Have just discovered leafminer tunnels all over the Granny's Bonnets. It's a constant battle isn't it?

it is indeed a constant battle but if we like butterflies and pretty moths we have to put up with the caterpillars.

Actually looks like bird damage, to me. Note the distinctive triangular bites.
