How do I control curl grubs in my potted roses

hi I have standard roses in large pots and have noticed that a couple arent doing so well, then I discovered curl grubs in the pot, as their in large pots I would prefer not to have to repot and disturb the plants is their a product I can use that will kill the grub without hurting my roses???

Hi Christine,

We only have a product registered for curl grubs in lawns unfortunately we don't have a product that will treat them in your garden pots or gardens. Keeping your roses healthy will ensure that the curl grubs won't damage the roots too much,so regular applications of seaweed tonic Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate and making sure the soil is well drained should help your roses come back.
