Something is eating Maria’s Sunflowers in the Homeward Bound Memorial Garden.
Seems too high for slugs to climb, and too much damage for earwigs. No caterpillars to be found.
If you are a Sunflower expert, please weigh in to save these tall beauties.
I am a nascent gardener, rescuer, and photographer, chronicling the journey of the dogs at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary near Sacramento, CA - and the Memorial Garden we have devoted to them.

Just a wild guess, but, sun flowers ate high on grasshoppers list of preferred plants
Thanks for the tip. We haven’t seen too many grasshoppers yet, but its a good thought!
Maria here. I would really like to find out since this damage was all done during the week from Monday until today, Friday. Please help. If it is a bird, then i guess there is nothing that can be done. Would it help to hang streamers to detract the birds from landing on the big leaves.
Good one, but munching is too large, I think, for Lace Bugs.
So cute, but I know those bunnies do damage. Love your golden and the bunny toy. I agree with pobept, grasshopper candy.
After our visit today…we believe the culprit is finches. Wait until you see what Maria’s plan!
