Will this save my Pumpkins from SVB?
I discovered my pumpkins had SVB yesterday, and they had been droopy for about a week. I cut the stem open and removed that maggot. Then, I covered the stem with rich soil. This morning the leaves were not very droopy. But as the day went on, they became droopy. The pumpkin has roots further up the vine. Where there were no in ground roots, I threw down some rich soil at the bases of the leaves, mixed with a SMALL amount of miracle gro, which I dislike for obvious reason, but I thought it would help. I cleared a path for the vine too, ripping out all weed and putting down that soil. Will it survive? It IS growing! It is around 6ft long.
