The dreaded vine weevil!

Posted: 18/11/2015 at 20:30

Exactly the same thing has happened to me! Blamed the kids for pulling them out at school then had to explain to everyone about vine weevils . I have drenched all my new polyanthus plants with provado and am giving them 2 weeks for the stuff to work before I replant - weather permitting!

Welcome! Definitely take pics - great for memories and reminders of what you planted and have forgotten about. Great for us on here, we love pics 

I would also recommend a wildlife camera - I bought mine from Lidl a few months ago (it will come around again) and have caught hedgehogs on it which gave me great pleasure. It also caught a fox squeezing into the hedgehog feeding box and snaffling their food!!

Are you urban or rural?

Talkback: Can I reduce a large pampas grass?

Sounds great, everyone is happy. How much do you want to reduce it by?

what would you do differently?

I wouldn't have let that sycamore sapling become what it is today - I feel I blinked and it is now a huge tree!!

Anybody's Nerines showing any sign of flowering? Mine still have lovely strap like leaves and not a sign of any emerging flower spikes yet. 

Any ideas for an entry.....
