1. In the spring, set out the seedlings in the normal manner, spacing them at least 18 inches apart.
  2. As you settle in each plant, surround it with a ring of onion sets, spacing them

4 inches apart. The idea, Jeff says, is to encircle the cabbage family plants so that they're hidden by a screen of onions.

Imported cabbageworms and cabbage loopers feed on leaves in the cabbage family. Imported cabbageworm adults are white butterflies, whereas cabbage tooper adults are gray mottled moths.
