Twig Girlders

3rd March 2014

Are you finding mysterious looking branches on your lawn? If the ends of the branches appear to have been shaped with a pencil sharpener with a jagged center it is likely the work of the twig girdler beetle. Find out about their life cycle and measures to control them on my latest Central Texas Gardener segment.

Even if you only have a balcony or patio, you can grow tasty winter vegetables and flowers to eat or for fragrance. Trisha Shirey shows how to do it, even in recycled containers. You can even paint plastic pots to match your outdoor décor!
