Broccoli/Cabbage Worms


Anonymous added on May 28, 2011 | Answered

I've started my broccoli and eggplant under remay (agri-ribbon) fabric. The plants are huge and healthy and pest free. Is it okay at some point to liberate them from under the fabric. Are they strong enough at this point to live out from under? The eggplants are under the same cloth trying to outsmart the flea beetles. Will these also have to spend their entire lives under the fabric? I understand the eggplants have to come out when their flowers need to be pollinated. What to do?
