Description taken from back of box 

BugClear™ Ultra Vine Weevil Killer protects your precious plants from Vine Weevil larvae. It works in roots and soil as a contact and systemic action insecticide, protecting your plants from Vine Weevil damage and other common pests.

Vine Weevil larvae are a major pest for ornamental garden and household plants. The larvae feed on plant roots causing sudden wilting or killing your plants. The larvae are most active from July to October as they feed on your plants to fatten up for over wintering, while they develop in to adults the following year.

To care for your plants and avoid root damage, treat the compost with BugClear Ultra Vine Weevil Killer. BugClear is very easy to use, simply mix and apply. It kills on contact and is absorbed by plants to kill Vine Weevil larvae and other common bugs as they feed on your plants. If required, treat again after 8 weeks.

BugClear kills all major insect pests including: whitefly, greenfly, blackfly, scale insects and mealy bugs.

For use all year round indoors and from April to September outdoors.

Kills on contact and protects for up to 8 weeks

The Basics

Ideal soil

Acidic soil, good organic content, pH 4.5-6.0. Inkarho range of rhododendrons will tolerate soils up to pH7.5

Sun or Shade

Light dappled shade is best for most varieties.


Refer to hardiness rating. Give young plants protection.

Site Selection

Avoid close to trees, roots, invasive weeds, walls, hot patios, dry banks and waterlogged soils. Do not use weed matting or stone mulch.

Plant spacing

Use the height shown in 10 years as a guide to the distance between each plant. Allow room for plant to fill out. If planting closer for instant impact, be prepared to move plants after a few years.


  • 3 litre pot, dig in 10-20 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 7.5 litre pot, dig in 20-30 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 70-80cm specimen, dig in 60 litres of ericaceous compost.
  • 100-120cm specimen, dig in 120 litres of ericaceous compost.

Planting depth

Plant high in the ground, with the top of the rootball visible.


Slow-release ericaceous feed recommended in March and straight after flowering.


Recommended every few years.


The key ingredient! Keep moist all season, especially the critical time at end of June for flower bud initiation. Tap water is better than no water. Heavy dose at least once per week in dry weather.


Ensure good drainage in winter, especially with yellow flowering varieties. Avoid waterlogged sites.


Rhododendrons and Camellias: Not normally required. Tidy wayward shoots after flowering.

Evergreen azaleas and Bloombux can be clipped into a low hedge.

Magnolias and Acers: Formative pruning when young to shape into a tree or bush.


Remove old flower-heads, particularly on young or weak plants.
