--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a large number of garden container pots and they are usually infected by vine weevil so I want to drench them in either Provado or Nematodes in the next few weeks. Can anyone tell me where I can get Nematodes as I believe Provado is no longer available in Ireland.
Many thanks

flipsat, I was out and about a few garden centres today, they told me that nobody would licence Provado 2 for the Irish market.
Thats about as much as I got, but I will dig deeper on this issue shortly.
For now the nematodes are available from the Mr. Middleton Garden Shop, 58 Mary Street, Dublin 1.
This is them on their online shop http://www.mrmiddleton.com/shop/product.php?productid=1&cat=1&page=2
Enjoy. Razz

I bought Bayer Provado Vine Weevil Killer2 in B & Q yesterday.

I normally don't lose any plants but those weevils have infested some of my troughs and beheaded some. Grrrr!

Pravo contains a chemical that effects honey bees maybe they are coping on, Is Armillotox still available.
Plant Primulas in peat compost near the plant you want to save vine weevil like that and hate grit.so they will move into the compost and eat your primulas them kill the littel (Fu.rs) beasties.

Thanks for the tips Greengage, particularly about grit.

Never poured Provado before. My troughs are completely covered in foliage. No bare earth showing. Can I pour it over the plants without damaging them. (except for the ones that have already been vine-weeviled.)
