If nasturtiums keep bugs away what's eating mine?
I have nasturtium seedlings that are being eaten by something ... some have been completely stripped of leaves. There appears to be some granular black "peppery" looking bug on the underside of the leaves near where the stem connects. Eeeek! If nasturtium keep away bugs, why are bugs eating them? An aside to this is I've seen little white moths around the seedlings since they've been up. Yesterday, I madly chased one around the yard with a spray bottle full of water. Local headlines read: Mad woman seen in moth genocide rampage. (film at eleven) ;-)
