We don't have to deal with borers here in Arkansas, but I know many, many
other listers do. Did anyone else see this show? Does anyone know which

I thought the "explode" comment was peculiar. She used it several times. She
did not suggest a source for her nematodes. Also, that program being a
national show does not suggest where the advice portions are filmed or in
what area they might be effective. She did not cite a source of her
information as I think of it!
HGTV followed that with Joanna Reed's famous Malvern, PA garden. I hope you
saw that one as well as the above. Ms. Reed, a widow over 80 years of age
maintains a huge garden that can be toured by the public. She was a
wonderful interview. I have been there and been duly impressed.
HGTV has a website where you can look at program information and write to the
various programs via e-mail. I find the nematodes to good to be true,
probably freeze to death up my way.
