Thanks HC.....will check it out.
totally agree with you about making it easy for weevils to thrive and about being vigilant. Also about many gardeners using mpc for everything.....john innes used more often would help.
I ....touch wood....have good control over them here now. Multipurpose composts are mixed with my own sieved soil, plants in pots mulched with grit, new plants, soil and tops, thoroughly checked as far as possible. Susceptible plants like heucheras and primulas are lifted, checked and replanted regularly: plants like fuschias locally treated. Adult weevil hunting too has helped me to have very little problems. Not using old compost too.
Changing our gardening habits and having more discipline will do a lot to combat or even eradicate vine weevils....as I said, works for me
I do resort now and then in winter to Provado to treat soil around precious heucheras and the like.
