Solomons seal

North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom

I have just been admiring my Solomons seal before the sawfly gets it, is there a cure for stopping the caterpillars stripping the plant?



If you don't mind using chemicals then something with Rotenone or Pyrethrum in will work.

Failing that, fingers and thumb (to squash them)
