How to get rid of Vine Weevil Grubs

Nemasys is a biological vine weevil grub killer. Apply in the evening or dull conditions such as rainfall as soil must be moist before and for at least 2 weeks after application. This size pack pictured does quite a sizeable area, however there are packs for smaller areas as well depending on how much you need.

One application provides control for up to 6 weeks, if you need continues protection, re-apply at this time. It’s super easy to apply and will keep your plants nice and healthy.

Keep unopened packets in the fridge to keep them fresh. They don’t wake up until added to water! We don’t sell these but they are widely available at garden centres and on Amazon if you have a look.

Heuchera ‘Red Lightening’

Heuchera ‘Red Lightening’ has electrifying dark red veins, over huge gold leaves. As you can see this gets a bit larger than you’re average Heuchera!

It is best in shade/partial shade as it has lighter leaves that may burn in full sun. It sprouts up pretty white flowers in the summer. It’s very hardy and requires little maintenance so it’s perfect for the no-fuss gardener who wants to add some colour to their garden.

You can shop Red Lightening HERE on our website.
