Much to my disgust there were lots of little nasty wiggly white grubs under the moss.
Interestingly you can see the Tesco's premium light kitty litter at the bottom of the pot. Roots were developing nicely in it. The straight John Innes No.4 didn't work very well and there was no visible root development in it after a year - not very good at all. It needs pumice and gravel to loosen it up.
Ive got some Provado Vine Weevil Killer and il dose all the plants with it.
