Lobelia Pests

jaquir added on June 24, 2012 | Answered

My string of pearls lobelia appears to be being eaten by something, leaves losing colour and curling up. I am not very clued up on gardening. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to treat please? They are planted in containers on a fence. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for the advice, but I live in Sunny Scotland, and if anything they are getting too much water at the minute. Squirted them with some diluted fairy liquid and it seems to have helped, so will wait and see what happens.
