A couple of questions from a fellow grower:
Thanks for your suggestion on white flies, we are trying the oil solution and hope it works. They are fast working suckers.
Could we ask you a couple of questions?
- We are greenhouse growing (Southern CA), should we be leaving the screen open so natural predators can gain access to the plants/etc? We have been keeping it closed.
- Are ladybugs beneficial to the plants?
- We are also 1Ž2 miles to the beach – can we put natural sand in the soil or are there too many minerals in it? ( I think one of your suggestions was sand on the soil….I have read so many!
- We are going to get zinnias/etc.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. We are primarily growing for purposes of creating oils (olive, coconut), balms, vegan recipes and ‘not so sugary’ treats.
