Just killed my first SVB, and question?

Post  CPN on 6/15/2010, 6:01 pm

So I lost my entire yellow squash plant yesterday to squash vine borer. I was sick! Well after reading here and researching online I decided to check my zuchinni plant. Sure enough i cut along the stem and found to of those suckers. My plant was still fine from all I could tell. So I packed soil up to the point where I had made the cut. Did I do this right? Also I dont think they are any further up in there because the stem gets smaller and seemed to be no hollow at all........

That is how you do it. I put masking tape around the wound, but haven't seen that recommended by Mel or plant experts. It's just one of those, "I've always done it that way" kind of thing.

Will have to try the tape thing. So far my plant looks okay. I think i may have saved it!
