Cutworms

The cutworms (green worms) have eaten just about all of my collards. The more I pick off, the more I find the next morning. How do I get rid of them?

Growing Georgia Collards

I have some collard plants. I know there is more to growing them other than just putting them in the ground. Do they like this kind of weather–hot or colder? How long until they can be eaten? Do they need fertilizer? I use Miracle Grow. Is that ok?

Holes in Collards Leaves

My collards are healthy, but have holes in leaves. Looked for beetles but could not find any. Do you know what is causing this damage?

ANSWERS

With collards, holes are caused by slugs. They only come out at night. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/facts-about-slugs-and-how-to-kill-garden-slugs.htm

How Do I Protect My Collard Greens in Freezing Weather

How do I protect my collard green in freezing weather? Do they need to be covered? If so, with what and how?

ANSWERS

Floating row covers can provide adequate protection for heavy frosts. Cold frames work better for protectiing collards against heavy snows and freezing; however, southernmost regions generally do not require much in the way of winter protection other than a bit of mulching.

Collard Greens

When collard plant goes to seed at top of plant, does the plant need to be pulled up and replanted?

ANSWERS

Most greens tend to become tough once the plant has bolted. You may be able to harvest some of the younger leaves and test taste to see if they are tolerable or not. Otherwise, pull the plant.
