Next year and the same problem

Postby Cookie_2 » Tue Oct 27, 2020 9:11 pm

Hello!

It's the next year I've got a problem with my cabbage. I'm fed up and don't know what to do. Last year I noticed a small worms on my cabbages which were getting bigger. I managed to survive some cabbages but this year the problem came back. I tried using fertilizers and sprayings but I don't want to use lots of chemical substances as it affects the quality of food which I would like to eat later.

I have cabbage 'Polar' from https://gardenseedsmarket.com/cabbage-seeds-en/ - I know it's tasty but should be for me, not worms!

What would you do in such situation?

By worms do you mean caterpillars? Try growing under netting.
