Annual Japanese Beetle Post
What, if anything, did you notice the beetles ignored? and What did they favor?
We grow lots of container flowers on our deck. We try to grow what the beetles don't like. We had some beetles last year, but that's because we broke down and had to grow some cannas. Cannas were the only thing they went for.
We've never found them on our california poppies, mums, oriental lillies and wax begonias.
We use some half wine barrels where we hide a geranium in the mums so the beetles don't find them. Although, some tobacco worm did! Man, that thing was so hard to find, didn't find it til the plant was half gone!
How about everyone else?
