The only places we use insecticidal soap and fungicide is on the food crops. In particular the broccolini, the grape vines and the fruit trees need to be protected from fungal infections when our wind comes from the TX gulf direction.
The brassica plants - broccoli, kale, etc. get tiny beetle holes in them when they are very tiny and the bugs are too small to hand pick.
|Argentinian vervain, Verbena bonariensis|
