On P. Allen Smith's Web site, he suggests:
Wrap tomato seedling stems with aluminum foil to deter cutworms. Once
the plants mature the stem will thicken enough that these pests won’t
be a problem and you can remove the foil.
Anybody heard of this?
ALSO: Last year was tragic for tomatoes. Wilt,wilt, wilt.
Not just me.
Any way to take pro-active steps?
If the wilt is Fusarium or Verticillium wilt you need to locate
your tomatos, potatoes, peppers, eggplants, and basil to another
location for three to four years.
