Did a check on my plants this morning....all looks good except for one Heuchera, Berry Smoothy. A quick tug confirmed vine weevils. Not a root to be seen. I had treated all my Heucheras, etc in autumn but I think I missed this one.
Excavated soil, extracted weevils, washed my plant after cutting it back and dividing it and replanted elsewhere. It will be just fine. Vine weevils are delicious on toast so that's breakfast sorted for tomorrow. (a locally well known cornishman....some 30 miles east....eats road kill. All sorts of road kill. Apparently he hasn't bought meat for years. Thought I would share this at lunchtime with ??ou guys)
Rain here now..........hmmmmmm!
