geranium budworm

Posted: 12/08/2015 at 12:19

These are in my greenhouse. The buds have tiny round holes in them and inside is a small green caterpillar. It eats itself out of the bud and as itgrows it starts to eat the leaves. Thus spoiling the buds and leaves. You will see copious amounts of catterpillar droppings to. My out side geraniums, hardy, are ok and have cut them down for another flush of leaf and flowers.

Any  one else had problems with this. Ruining my plants this year. Only control i,ve found is to hand pick them over every day. Those in the greenhouse that is.

Hello Everyone, my question is, where/who would like an assortment of free flower seeds going begging. My local garden club has not bothered to reply. They are all viable and it,s such a shame to see them go to waste.

What are these I potted up?

Hi Mrs Garden, the big pot is a phlox.
