Help please - I'm a newly enthusiastic gardener and still learning - my geranium Rozanne which I brought about a month ago is doing really well with lots of flowers and has spread already but it's leaves are covered in tiny pin prick holes. I have a slugproblem but they decimate the plants so donthink it it's them as the holesso tiny tiny! Any ideas anyone? Thanks

Sarah

Its caterpillars.  Geraniums have been attacked this year very badly

I suggest You  cut it hard back to the base and put those leaves in the bin.  Spray the bare base with soap spray or insecticide.  Your geranium will regrow,in couple of weeks and flower again within 4 weeks.
