Something is eating and killing my Busy Lizzies and my geraniums. Could be snails but I cant see any.



Go out with a torch after dark Mali and you probably find slugs and snails chomping away.

Me too but only my busy lizzies, not geraniums or petunias. I read about Impatiens downy mildew on the Gardeners World website and believe it could be this. It is definitely not snails or slugs and I've sprayed them with every bug killer going... :-(

Busymum down mildew will certainly kill busy lizzies but it wont eat them... slugs are not affected by bug killers!
