Hi hennypennys garden what colour were the beetles if crimson red I'm afraid so keep a lookout for more little blighters and squash them also lookout for the grubs on leaves

A friend of mine asked me a question about vine weevils he found some in a pot and emptied the compost out disposed of the grubs, and re potted it with fresh compost the plant had only a few roots left.the question is will it survive or not.I could not tell him so thought I'd open it to the forum for a answer? thanks for any replies to help him.
