Google Cut Worms.  I have had problems with them in the Seattle area for years.  They "cut" the plant off at it base.  A trick to see if you have them...make a little bag out of cheese cloth and fill it with dried oatmeal and bury it near the plant.  Dig it up in a few days and see if you "caught" any.  I use this truck to control they as well.

HI All,  

So cold back east, sorry.   Here in Seattle area snowdrops are starting to push through the ground and my Galanthus woronowii is up and blooming.    I did have trouble with something eating the snowdrop blooms last year.  I wonder if anyone knows what it could be.    I do see some rabbit nibbles on the leaves, and don’t see slug or snail trails (it is still a bit cold for them).    I did put out some slug/snail killer last year but didn’t see any significant difference in non treated areas vs treated areas.

Any help would be appreciated, I have many varieties and would love to see all of them not just bits.
