Moth infestation of Anemone Corms

I recently purchased 100 Anemone Corms from J Parker wholesale. When I opened the envelope, a month after delivery, a swarm of small moth came out and the Corms were riddled with their larvae. Has anyone else had moth infested corms. They look very similar to a Cork Moth.

    No, but I'd take a picture, email it to them and ask for money back.

    do you live near the Warbstow Cross by any chance.? 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Parker’s have been great. Even though we can’t be sure where the corms got moth they are sending replacements. If you have corms waiting to be planted I strongly recommend storing them in a sealed container.

    Yes Lyn I do live at Warbstow....heart of Davidstow cheese country!
