I have come from a courtyard garden where I had lots of pots to a new garden with lovely beds and was going to transfer my perennials from the pots to the beds but am having to throw the whole lot out because they're riddled with vine weevil. I've drenched them in the past but can't bear to risk it so am just starting again. But because I want to keep pots I've just been recommended Armillatox which is sold as a patio cleaner but also is very good for vine weevil and other pests. It's organic and based on coal tar and is cheaper than nematodes. My new plan is to just put a little in my watering can every time I water the pots to keep them at bay - and to chuck anything with them in already.
