If you can get a sample and take it in to the OSU plant clinic on Hanley road behind Central Point, they can help you identify it. (Open 10-2 weekdays. Just go into the main bldg next to the parking lot, step inside, and go through the doors to the left.

Just doing landscape planting right now. I have given up on my Photinia hedge and have torn it out. Going to plant a center tree and some fast-growing evergreen flowering vines on the fence line.
You can do soil test any time; conditions as far as the soil don't change in and of themselves. It just depends on when YOU want to know.

Hi, Lorri. Sorry to hear about the worms. We at RVG are learning about various pests, but in any case without a worm to analyze for identity, it's impossible to guess what you have. As you know, there are various worms/larvae that live in the soil. Can you get in touch with the Extension Service or take a worm to the Grange Coop near you for help? One thing we do know, various insects/larvae may be friend or foe, and a shotgun approach to dealing with them is not wise gardening. Kudos to you for asking questions. Here's hoping your peas are still alive and that you can get to the root of this problem.
