help ! just had a look at trailing surfinia in hanging basket ,& something is eating the leaves quite rapidly ! What is it please & what do i need to treat it ? I cant see the culprit ! I would appreciate a quick reply .Thanks



It will either be SLUGS and/or SNAILS, or earwigs. Is there a slimy trail? Then, slug pellets will protect it. Earwigs in a hanging basket would be hard to deal with, as received wisdom says place a flowerpot filled with straw upside down on a cane and shake them out in the morning!!!!!
