In July I planted 2 healthy specimens. Both have grown well
but leaves are being eaten away. I cannot find trace of anything on leaves. Please see attached 2 pictures. Any suggestions
of cause and remedy would be greatly appreciated.

HI, Judith,
It looks like caterpillar damage to me. Somewhat surprising in Nov, but some caterpillars lay a second generation on eggs now. Other than continuing to inspect for any pests, you could try spraying with an organic insecticidal soap, or make your own spray with washing up liquid in water (adding some crushed garlic will further repel the pests).
