Yes, nematodes applied next September will control those feeding in the soil then.

Mollis, for now there is not a lot you can do.

In September you can use nematodes to control leather jackets to prevef this happening next year.

For now just brush up those grubs and dispose of them

Are these some kind of daisy?

Edd, green tulips, green hellebores including Corsicus, green envy echinacea but what about green coleus?  I had some fantastically coloured green ones last year.

For me the fancy red, pink, even white varieties do not do very well.  Their hardyness even here is suspect.  

Local nurseries here sell lavendars at rock bottom prices in spring......sure this happens elsewhere too. The advantage is that then they are raring to grow and the comditions are better.

Ryan, how about moving just some of them?  You could move them now but they won't flower this year.  Imthink I,would wait until flowering is over and they are dying down a little and then dig some with as much rootball as possible.  Water well, plant shallowly and in warm sunny spot.  Mark where they are.

I'm scared!

I know where you are coming from Dove.  Once I have decided something I impulsively make a start......committed then.  As long as I'm sure it's what I want to do and have worked it all out.  Then I'm all attack and energy.  Satisfying.  And usually it works out just fine.
