My mange tout peas are being nipped off at about 6", don't think it is slugs, and I haven't seen rabbits about.

    Have you got squirrels? They're b*****s for nipping things off.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    If you can get some holly prunings, it may slow them down a bit.

    Thank you, have plenty of holly so will try that.  Pigeons it may be because they are about, also have seen one squirrel a week or so ago, so thank you, I did also put netting up when the plants were just coming up, but they were still being "nipped", all very neat too.
