Vine weevil eggs in bought pots please help

Posted: 13/06/2016 at 09:28

If there are still roots on the plants they might grow on, I would pot them up with fresh compost for a while and drench the soil with Provado vine weevil killer.

sorry I don't mean to advertise a particular brand but it's the only one I know which will do the job.

I have planted grass seed in seed trays and that works if you have got a larger area to cover.
