     Nematodes for the vine weevil Jacqui.   Just have to be vigilant with the Lily beetles.   
    Paris pot garden ????
    Yup I live just outside Paris and my terrace is on the first floor of our building so everything is in pots.....! Tried to get nematodes last year but can’t seem to find a French website which sells them.

    Last year our Imperial Fritillary and lily were attacked by beetles inspire of the bug killers. This year Ive gore off fungus/bug killers and have been spraying with garlic tonic, fortnightly, since Feb and have not seen any. Not sure if its the garlic or whether they have gone on a holiday somewhere. Ive also got some neem oil in case they start liking the garlic.
