I agree. Thank you so much for letting me know about the mexican sunflower. I grew last year and they were beautiful.

For city folk with VERY small area for garden (with partial and direct sun)... what would be your top recommendations for pollinator plants ?

Isnt nasturtiums a trap for squash bugs
squash bugs suck the life out of the vines
Against squash bugs, I was told to cut a 4" long, 2" wide plastic ring ( water bottle, PVC piping) and bury 2" and keep 2" above ground and it would deter the bugs?
dish soap in some water kills them, but I think it hurts the plants?
Do you follow Joe Lampl? I asked because his emails and last week, his email was promoting Pitt Moss. He said the person who told him about it, wasn't getting paid by Pitt Moss, I thought of you. He strongly recommended Pitt Moss.
