You may be overwatering them if you are watering every day-have you made drainage holes so any excess water can drain away?

Then it was probably the frost- hopefully will be ok next year -it could be just one of those years I'm afraid-nothing can be done

We have the same problem, every year we get a hugh crop of lovely cooking apples but so far this year we can't see one apple coming.  Why?

We had some unusually late frosts in May this year- mostly the Midlands northward -just around apple blossom time-here in the South we escaped and have apples -so it is probably down to frost damage.

Where are you situated?

It is safe if you have wiped them out-are you talking about a bag of potting compost or a garden compost bin?

Ants love a dry compost bin -if it is wet they go elsewhere

Possibly earwigs if it is just flowers-is the damage like this?

Lovely pics, Geoff--are those Peach Melba nasturtiums?

Geoff goes to welsh dresser- rummages through drawer- finds seed packet-and announces they are called-"cream purple spot"
