Biljie........that's good that it was just you being heavy handed
Like you, I try not to use chemical treatment but there is a limit ...........the vine weevils seem to be really prevalent these days. They decimated my strawberries this Spring ...again in containers. In my experience, they don't seem to cause trouble in the borders but they do love containerised stuff.
It's a while since I have seen the adults.......my Heucheras were container brought plants which were obviously already harbouring the little wretches but my strawberries were bare root plants purchased last year and so I assume the adults are around in my garden just waiting to pounce
