Honneysuckle problem

Hi Forum,

I have a lovely young honeysuckle which I am training around a tree. All was well untill tonight and I have come home to find the tops eaten, the string around the tree that it was growing up is broken, branches bent over and a rose that is growing next to it has the blooms all droopy. Any ideas?

    Any deer around your way?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    We had the same problem with the local wildlife. We put 4 honeysuckle in along a fence and a week later i had to chase the pesky critter out of our garden. They are making a comeback this year tho but i suspect that our little garden gobbler will be back in the winter when food is low.

    No deer anywhere around, although it would have been the perfect answer. I have 6ft gates at the back garden and a main road to the front. I thought pigeons but they have not shown an interest in tree climbing yet as they have food at ground level.

  • Please can anyone help one of my plants as started to be taken over by ants what can i use on the plant that is not going to kill it
