I have grown some beautiful Asiatic lillies this year but they have been attacked by a grub/slug type creature that has eaten them from the inside of the flower. Can you help me identify the grub and how to combat this happening again please?



i expect it is the dreaded lily-beetle larvae which are covered in black slime. The beetles themselves are bright red and you can buy a preparation to deal with the problem.
