Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Veteran gardeners often claim a drop of mineral oil placed on the end of a developing ear of corn will discourage earworms. But Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) sprinkled on the emerging corn silk is more effective. The best way to avoid earworms altogether is by planting a short-season variety like ‘Early and Often’ or ‘Early Choice’ as early as possible. Earworms usually cause the most damage in late summer. So, if you can harvest early, the corn will be on the dinner table long before the earworms have a chance to damage the crop.
