Answer: Short of removing and replacing the soil in your planter, you can place a twig or toothpick next to the main stems of each of your plants to keep cutworms from encircling the stem and chewing it off at soil level. The idea is to keep the pests from being able to encircle the stems. You might even try placing 3 toothpicks around each stem. Best wishes with your garden!
