Need any advice for overwintering these standards. My pots constantly have vine weevil infestations (much to my annoyance) and thought that maybe if I de-leaved my fuchsias and overwintered them indoors, would this help to keep my fuchsias from being eaten? Any advice would be very much appreciated, thanks in advance 😊

My lovely standard fuschia's leaves are being demolished by vine weevil and although I've treated it and looked for it at night with a torch, I still can't find the little critter 🙄 #vineweevil #fuschia

There are some capsules you can buy that you place in the soil next to the plant and it prevents them being eaten. (Sorry I don't know what they are called ) My mum gave me some for my hydrangea and it works!

They look more like beecutter notches than vine weevil to me
