Hi! new to the forum, new at growing vegetables

15 years ago

Hi all! I'm attempting to grow vegetables, here where I live in the Netherlands (I'm from Argentina). Already lost two melon plants, and three pumpkin plants to vine borers... it drove me angry, sad, I thought I'd start to cry, but no way! I still have some more pumpkin seedlings I've grown, in different stages (those are in pots for now), so I'll try extending row covers as soon as I plant them in the ground. I can't give up just like that.

I'll ppreciate any tips&advice you might give me, of any additional way to prevent the borers from laying eggs on my plants.

Thank you!
