plant damage

Postby philj » Sat Jul 19, 2014 1:24 pm

I have planted Monarda Gardenview Scarlet this year which presently has fantastic flowers but is being damaged for the last week or so. Each day I check the plant only to find a number of the flowering stems broken, always at the connection to the main stem and at least a foot from the ground.
The only visitors we have to the garden are birds and possibly squirrels but we have not seen any for a while now. Any ideas on what may be causing this ?
Monardas (bee balm) attract bees and butterflies but there is a definite shortage of those this year, I see no more than two bees at a time, the odd butterfly but thankfully have not seen any greenfly this year.
