A recently planted rhodie has brought infection to my garden
I have a garden which - ulike my prior property - is free from little black weevils. However I recently purchased a small rhodie from Home Depot (what an idiot) and I noticed that the flowers had all dropped overnight last night (its small so there are only three of them!).
It is clear that this plant has weevils as the liitle flower components are all cut through the stems - exactly the same tye of damage as I had in my lasat property.
More important my garden is now infected to some extent by weevils. The question is by how much? This lousy plant has been in the ground for three weeks and I wonder whether the nearby rhodies which are about three or four feet away would have been "invaded" yet? How long do this little pests take to migrate? I guess I will yank this piece of infected Home Depot trash up - maybe I should return it for a refund.
