Lamium & Pulmonaria

plantgnome(6b//7)June 2, 2012

Hi-new to this forum does anyone else have a problem with something eating holes in lamium?I have Lamium maculatum Ghost and it looks like swiss cheese as well as my Mrs. Moon Pulmonaria

Looks like slug damage on the lamium. I've never grown pulmonaria.

The people I purchased it from said the same thing. I cut all the Pulmonaria to the ground and am going to do the same with the Lamium. clean up any leave debris and dump sluggo all over the place. I thought it might have been spider mites because of webs under the foliage. thanks for the info.

Wow, never seen anything go for pulmonaria because the leaves on mine are spiny (maybe not on yours?). I use Bug-Geta from Ortho. It nukes the slugs and snails pretty good.

Mine are rather spiny on the stems but the plant was so large the leaves were basically on the ground. Could be bugs also. I will try to find that product you used and try it also. thanks
