Japanese Beetles and datura
Help! I have had a row of raspberries decimated 2 years running by Japanese beetles. Have been told that datura planted right next to the berrybushes should keep the beetles away.
Yesterday I mail ordered 2 Angle trumpet plants (Brugmansia suaveolens and another sp.) by mistake, thinking they were Datura also. Only now did I see they are a different genus.
Anyone know if they will have the same effect on the beetles? The Brugmansia get tall enough to "protect" the berry bushes whereas the Datura sp. I've seen for sale gets only 3'tall.
