When is it safe to plant out warm season veggies like squash, peppers and tomatoes?

By Keith Funk

A:  April and May are excellent months for controlling Japanese Beetle grubs that overwintered from last fall.  My personal choice is Phyllom Grub Gone granules.  It’s a bacterial product, very specific to scarab beetle grubs only.  This means the product will not harm beneficials like bees, butterflies, and ladybugs. It’s even approved for organic vegetable gardening. 

Keith Funk is handling our Q & A this year. You may have visited one of Keith’s Denver area gardens on a tour or know him from his years at Echter’s and now at Nick’s Garden Center. For 30 years he’s been heard every Saturday morning from 7-9 with fellow Wise Guy, Jim Borland, on the Garden Wise Radio Show on Legends 810AM.
