They make a horrible mess of some of my garden plants...

esp. Cape Figworts,(Phygelius) were so poor a few years back that I cut them to ground level to kill the plants in cultivation rather than be weeding out Figworts .The Phygelius did return & have not been so bad.I would rather go with it than fight nature as I was wasting my time picking off the weevils.
