Guest Blogging for The Herb Companion Magazine. Gives you a little better look at the damage on oregano (one of its favorites) and other herbs it likes. Because of the mild winter and warm to hot spring, they are out a little bit earlier than usual and may last a bit longer as well. I leave a lot of lemon balm for them to attack on the perimeter of the garden. They do not fly when they are in the nymph stage, but do fly when they are adults. Again, mostly cosmetic damage that can be trimmed back once they are done. They can last into July! Just one generation, but it can seem like forever.
Hope you had a great day. We got our big containers out. I warned The Herbal Husband that the 40's were still possible. He has faith that it will only be in the 50's. Hope he is right or we will be moving plants back into the garage! Oh the pain of gardening!:-} Talk to you later.
