    My newly planted leeks have had the tops bitten off. Some still lying on the ground, some presumably eaten. Can anyone help please?

    Sounds like rabbits, I would replant and cover with mesh

    Thank you Charles.
    I did have some wire netting covering.
    Would the leeks Also have interested mice?

    Are fieldvoles present in your locale? They are charming little blighters but are a proverbial pain. While I enjoy their company (!), it would be better if they ate all the plant rather than a nip here and chunk there.
    My first frustration with them was in a production house growing- on bedding plants and they travel across a block of crop, ‘felling’ 1 or 2 per tray as if beavers in a forest, just to create a passage.
