I don't see any slugs, but we do have mice and squirrels in the garden. Could it be either one of these or something else. I understood snowdrops to be toxic and thought nothing would touch them.


  • It could be slugs they will hide during the day or insects theres not much growing at the moment so they will make a beeline for ant fresh new growth. Its the bulbs that are most toxic. did you know Cancer reserch are using the bulbs of snowdrops and certain parts of daffodils for a cure for some types of cancer

    Doubt that it is slugs-too cold or has been

    Birds sometimes go for crocus-a possibility??image

    Wouldn't think mice or squirrels would be interested in the flowers
