Hi - Hope someone out there can help, please!
I have young alstromeria plants which have started flowering and are gorgeous. Problem is, before they flowered, the leaves were punctured with lots and lots (and lots) of tiny holes but nothing at the edges, and now the flowers have bite marks out of them all over - edges and petals and everywhere else.
It's not snails or slugs - there's no sign of them at all but nor can I find a single caterpillar (which is more what it looks like). Plants two feet away on either side remain untouched. Any ideas? Can anything be done about caterpillars at all?
