I've been attacked by vine weevils for about 3 seasons and tried numerous remedies from chemicals to nematodes. Nothing has worked.
Last year I emptied all my tubs, threw out some old tatty ones and scrubbed the rest with hot water. I refilled everything with fresh compost, washed the plant roots of the plants I was keeping in cold water and replanted. That summer I had a satisfactory show of flowers but nothing spectacular.
In Autumn I took cuttings of my geraniums (pelagoniums) as usual and set them in individual pots to overwinter in the spare room. I have done this for many years.
Today I decided it was time to bring these out and start planting up for summer.
I was astonished to find FIVE dead mature vine weevils clinging to the inside of the spare room curtains.
Will my precious cuttings will have to go!
What can I do to make sure they don't return?
Throw everything out?
