Phorm Phamily Pharmers/Gardener's Fall is the Optimum time of the year to check your soils PH, and make needed adjustments, many of the lowering/raising additives need a period to be useful!!! Plus Ya get to play in your garden a lil more!!!
Not that I know of. The thing is to watch the base of your vines real close after you plant them out. BT will help, keep it on the lower 6-8 inches of the vine, re-apply after rain or watering washes it away.

as stated above, it's the first few inches above the ground that the borers are gunnin for, I use small pieces of salvaged reemay to cover the stem at that point (clear up to the first set of leaves) others use panty hose..but I ain't got any of those
