My poor rose campion is plagued by earwigs! 😣 They're nibbling on it and hiding deep in the foliage. What the best way to get them out?? #lychnis-coronaria #lychniscoronaria #rose-campion #rosecampion #earwig #pest #earwigs #help

Its just 1 plant. They're very good for the garden, usually only saying decaying matter, but deffo eating the bad guys like nematodes , aphids.

@jamescallifer I wish it were only 1 plant 😅 They're all over and have eaten seedlings before.

Ouch ok sorry, I'm sure there are options, I have no experience with the bugs

@jamescallifer no worries! When I first got the garden there were millions of them! They're mostly under control now but hopefully the exces will be eaten by birds 🤔

Or a rolled up newspaper under the plants. Earwigs are supposed to like the close space. Shake the bugs out in the morning

I was so delighted to find these two rose campion in my local corner GC!! I've really wanted them but nowhere around sold them so I was about to take a gamble on Amazon until I luckily saw these. I love the fuzzy silver leaves and can't wait to see them flower. I planted them near a lavender in the hot sun 😆 #campion #rosecampion #lychniscoronaria #lychnis-coronaria #rose-campion #foliage #silver #silverfoliage
