Impatiens Are Getting Eaten By Something

Q: I have impatients that have been attacked by something leaving only stems and a few leaves at the top. What can be done to help them and destroy the problem?

A: I don't have a crystal ball so I cannot answer your question. My guess is a wood chuck. You can try trapping it. Check with your county horticulture agent for more suggestions. May recover. Be sure to keep them watered. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
