Wilting Cauliflowers

Can't see them clearly, but if they have chestnut coloured heads then they're vine weevil grubs and they're eating the roots of your plants.


You can get rid of the little bu$$ers by applying the appropriate nematodes https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=234 .  You can buy them online -now is a god time to do it.


Good luck

Think I'd buy three more, two for myself and one more - fix a label on it saying 'I bought myself a present and got one for you two 'cos I know you love dianthus'  and pop it on their doorstep. 


That will 'heap burning coals' of shame on the neighbours' heads and they'll know that you know what they've done - and if for some reason it wasn't them, then you've just 'done a nice thing'

Public services are stretched to breaking point simply because successive governments and local authorities get elected by promising to keep taxes down and being disingenuous about what the services really cost to run.  We expect more and more from the same (or less) money.  It's as simple as that.  The Great British Public votes with its pocket rather than its brain
