Lost and Found
with Jane Wrigglesworth
It's time to trap those pesky wireworms
Renewable resource: Parsley and most other herbs can be left to flower and go to
Q. For the past couple of years my
entire potato crop has been
destroyed by worms eating
through the tubers. Is there some
way to stop them? I have planted
my potatoes in a different spot this
A. It sounds very much like
wireworm, which is the larvae of
the common click beetle. They
have a shiny creamy-yellow body
with a reddy-brown blush at each
end. Adults lay their eggs in the
soil and the larvae emerge to feed
on the roots and tubers.
As well as crop rotation, you can
make a trap using shop-bought
potatoes. Cut a potato in half, spear
it with a sturdy stick or skewer and
bury the potato about five
centimetres deep so that the stick
stands up vertically out of the
ground. That's your marker to tell
you where the potato is.
Place a few of these in your garden.
This is preferably done before you
plant your potatoes so you can
clear the ground before planting.
After a few days, pull them up to
see if any wireworms are present,
then bin the potato.
Plant more traps over the season.
Alternatively, take a 400 gram tin
can, punch holes in the bottom and
sides with a nail so the wireworms
can crawl through, then fill the can
with cut potato. Dig a hole in the
ground and bury it. Check it after
Another option is to try growing a
row of corn in between your
potatoes as a sacrificial crop, as
wireworm seem to particularly
like corn roots. These can be dug
up later and binned.
You could also try Kiwicare's No
Insects Lawngard Prills, which is
specifically formulated to control
ground- and soil-dwelling insects.
Q. I love growing herbs, especially
parsley, and would like to learn
how to collect my own seeds for
A. Parsley and most other herbs
can be left to flower and go to seed.
When the bulk of the seed has
turned brown, snip off the seed
heads, taking care not to shake
them about or you'll lose most of
Place the seed heads in a paper bag
and leave in a warm room for the
seeds to fall out naturally.
Leave the seeds to dry for a couple
of weeks before storing or sowing.
When storing, your seeds must be
protected from light, heat and
moisture, otherwise you may kill
Some herb seeds retain their
viability longer than others too.
Basil and coriander seeds, for
example may last four to five years,
while chives and sage may last one
to two years. Parsley is best sown
within the year.
French tarragon does not produce
viable seeds at all, though Russian
Note also that some herbs self-sow
very easily, including coriander,
dill, mustard, borage, rocket,
lemon balm and fennel.
