Mosquito dunks?
Do you drop 'em down the tube, put out little trays of water, or what?

Questions and Answers / Overwintering garlic in Zone 7a
« Last post by Dominic Gabriel on October 11, 2018, 06:20:03 pm »
What could possibly go wrong?

What if I put 8 cloves of Elephant Garlic in an EB Root&Veg right now?

Is this totally stupid? Will it all freeze solid or will ice crack the EB?

I'd take a squirt bottle and try to flush them off.

Just water?  Iíve been squishing by hand and knocking them off, but they just keep coming back.

They should be outside already in a shady spot.

Why a shady spot?  Do you mean bring them in at night so they donít freeze at night?

Questions and Answers / Aphids on seedlings

Iíve been lucky to be mostly chemical free in my garden, but I finally got a plague of aphids.

They are on my seedlings indoors.  Do I toss the lot and start over?  What should I use?  Iíve got about 3 weeks until last frost day.

Questions and Answers / growing annual and perennial flowers
« Last post by pressedflowerart on October 06, 2018, 12:09:16 pm »
Hello, it's been awhile since I've been here. !   My experiences with vegetables in earthboxes have been positive... now I'd like to try to figure out a way to place Earthbox juniors on the deck as railing planters -- trailing plants over railing.  Has anyone done this, or have thoughts on possible support?  (deck railing not strong enough, would need to set the earthboxes on some sort of support). 

thanks for ideas!

Follow the recommendations from UF Extension for corn grown in-ground, these will not be different for the corn in EBs
