A fellow gardener potted on some brassica plants which he had brought on in his greenhouse. The plants had grown to 5/6 inches in height and were in 3 inch modules. A few days ago he found that some of the plant stems had been cut/severed, but there was no sign of the missing stems and leaves. Later on, he found the stems and leaves intact, not having been nibbled, in a gap under a tray adjacent to where the plants were. They had obviously been carried there by the culprit, but left untouched! He has mousetraps set, but I do not think that mice tamper with brassicas, and would not in any event transport them to a "store". There is no sign of slug damage.
Baffled. Any ideas?

I would suggest rodents are likely, if hungry they will eat almost anything. Look for scats to identify the unseen. You don't say where this is so there could be other critters who act the same way, including those on two legs. Slugs and cut worms etc are not so tidy.
