can somebody tell me what is happening to my euonymus please. The leaves seem to have been eaten by something. What can I do?

    Quite possibly vine weevil.

    I agree, very likely adult vine weevil damage.  They are mainly nocturnal feeders, so try inspecting with a torch after dark.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    They aren't normally bothered long term @MartineB . It's just a bit unsightly  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Interesting, we usually only get them our Bravo variety (looks similar to yours), but they don't seem to bother the other Euonymus varieties that we have.  Perhaps they are partial to a bit of variegation in their diet.
