    Hello John,
    I have an Angel's Trumpet in my back yard and the cabbage worms are eating the leafs. I tried to get red of them in several ways, but they keep coming back. What can I do about it? Please help.

    You are always so encouraging. I am learning so much about gardening and I am trying to grow in beds and pots just to try things. I love to spend a little time in the garden every morning before I leave for work and it has made my day more relaxing.

    I take some sample gardening products to this guy I know and at first he said Azomite did not work and two years later he raved about an improvement in the quality of his plants. I just gave him written instructions why I use trace minerals from the ocean (kelp, crab shells, fish fertilizer, fish bonemeal, and azomite) and a few other suggestions. Most people in this community look at me like Deer in the Headlights when I ask for a certain product such as a root inoculant or bacillum, its just outside their area of knowledge… I really want to do "Pot Testing" to assure me its the best quality LOL!

  • The secret to keeping lady bugs around is to give them a home to go back to. A clean soda bottle in a well-shaded area or the package they came in hidden under a plant usually works. Whatever home you choose, keep their doorway small.
