What is eating my gunnera stems?
I have a bog garden in which I have planted a gunnera, hoping that it will settle and grow following two previous attempts with smaller specimens, one of which was eaten and one of which I failed to overwinter. However, something is eating this new plant - mainly the stems. I have seen reports elsewhere about slugs eating the leaves, but in our case something is stripping the stems specifically. I have taken slug precautions, but the stripping continues and all three main leaves are now collapsed. Please help as I would love to be able to grow this magnificent plant. We don't have deer or rabbits in the garden.
