Gardening (Southeastern USA)
 
I have been conducting organic gardening experiments to see what does and does not grow and looking at why problems arise. I named this thread for the southeast since results may vary depending on your local conditions. I helps in my research. In the southeast, the largest problem are moth larvae. There are different methods for dealing with this problem. My hope is to turn this thread into an informational exchange and for other folks in different areas to create their own gardening threads.

Don't like moth larva? Then plant natural bug repellants.

There is a related problem with plants, they like to be segregated or with other like-plants from the same family grouping. SEE, ;) we learn a lot from nature! If repellent type plants or flowers are too strong I find and books say they will dwarf or compete to destroy foodstuff plantings.

Our largest problem is with the Squash Vine Borer Moth in all of the southeast. It flies during day time hours when pollinators are also working hard in the garden and fools gardeners by having the appearance of a wasp when in flight. Only when it lands on the plant can we see it is a moth.

Did anyone in my zone start a winter garden for cold hardy vegetables?
