Talkback: Dealing with vine weevil

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 10:16

I have found them in Heucheras, Fuchsias, begonias, just tipped out the fuchsias to save for next year, always repot them as there is usually some in there. I put them all in a pot and put them out for the birds.

Premature and Floppy Paperwhites!

You may find that when they do come into flower that you wont want them again, all my family think they absolutely pong, we all had to put them out in the garden, couldn't stand the smell!

You may like them, some do.

They won't grow indoors again, they may grow if you put them outside in the garden, but not always.

What's left for us to grow?

Just read that Clematis and Delphiniums are toxic as well, mind you, perhaps they all account for how I am, just a bit pickled!

I have never worn gloves to prune a clematis, or the Aconitum, 

Lovely little lupins - is it best to just leave these pls?

Thats why I wont put anything to do with tomatoes or potatoes in my comost bins. They spring up all over the place, dig it out and chuck it.

To late to plant foxgloves?

I agree with Verdun, will plant mine out in Spring, bigger plants under shelter through the winter and you can keep an eye on the slugs.

Ours stays in the house, bloomed for the first time this year, grown from a seed sown about 3 or 4 years ago. Cant quite remember now.
