Daffodils being cut

Nearly every white daffodil in my garden has been picked or cut by something... humans have been ruled out, the stalk is cut at the base with no chew marks, no part has been eaten... is this the work of a dog, slugs or something else? Thanks! gardengnome, Cork, Co Cork Posted: 31/03/2017

Snails eat the flowers. Dogs do not touch as the stems are posionous to eat. Possible narcissus fly larvae or leatherjackets. It is unlikely to occur again and the plants will flower again.
