Hello fellow garden enthusiasts. This is a quick one, my dephiniums last year bloomed brilliantly. However this year they seem to be getting eaten from the start of the growing season. I have believed it was ants, and so tried a google answer! Of putting cayene pepper around the bottom and rice. This seems to of not worked as now the flowers arent getting to full bloom before being eaten. Also whatever it is is eating through the stem also, any idea's?
