I noticed just now that the new growth on my Acer Katsura is dying (it's in a pot) and after closer inspection saw the dreaded vine weevil in the soil. There is still some good looking growth so will I be able to save it if I repot it completely in fresh compost? If so do I cut off all the dying growth to help aid it's recovery?
I emptied some infested pots last week and laid out the compost on a big sheet so the birds could eat the pesky little nuisances. There are so signs of any grubs now so is it ok to throw that compost on the borders rather than waste it?
And Yes I WILL be going out today to buy some vine weevil killer to treat all my pots!
