I have a phygelius moonraker, normally no trouble but this year,covered in maggots that are sucking the life out of the ends of branches, help



I had a pink one in my garden. It spread like a bush fire and entertained masses of beetles, that I think were vine weevils. It went in the green bin. Next door was watering one last night in a bucket container and I suggested it stayed in the bucket. He said it reminded him of home and realised how it spreads......home was S.Africa.

thank you, but i dont think these are vine weeveils, they look just like maggots and are on top of the plant, not in the soil. The eggs are brown and dull, then go shiny then turn into these maggots.
