However, watching one's hard work and money wither and die in weeks, due to a pest as serious as vine weevil, is both disheartening and not something I'm willing to stomach.

i shall definitely try that first!
Will also follow Verdun's tip on at least removing my gardenia from its pot and checking it for grubs. Shame I can't do the same to my beds...
