I would use collars for all of those. It is better to be safe than sorry. Cutworms are NASTY!

Anything with a stem buried in the ground is food for cutworms.

I just planted broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower today and put 3 toothpicks around every one of them to prevent cutworms from curling around the stems and breaking them off. I find this method much easier than trying to work a paper collar around them.

I put collars made from used plastic or stryo cups around all transplants until they get bigger and then remove them and reuse, but I like the toothpick idea.

QB, I'm going to try your toothpick idea. It sounds great, and will probably help to prop up some of my more spindly starts.

My toothpick fortresses have been successful. I like the toilet paper roll idea, too.

We went through the cut worm infestation thing Sept & Oct and then some. Our first year of SFG that was some learning experience, you can read about it just search insects and then more insects, I wish cut worms on no one. Get them before they take over !
