Good afternoon all, one of my host's leaves are looking very sorry and floppy, can you please help as he is the most wonderful looking one I have and other years he's been fine, I've watered and fed him.




Is it in a pot or in the ground. If in a pot I would check for vine weevil grubs. It looks to be in a raised planter, so definitely check for them.

My thoughts exactly. Check for vine weevils.

Thank you both, it's in a large raised bed so shall I gig it up or would that make him die for this season

The weevils would be fairly close to the surface. You can usually find them if you just dig around the base of the stems.

How do I say thanks?
