Thanks. I am definitely learning more about "fall colors." And the pot wrapper is a great idea.

After the first freeze here, it seemed that all the remaining aphids and whiteflies moved into my greenhouse for lack of live plants to eat. I sprayed my first round of Met52 a few days ago, and everything is now dead. I had been spraying pyrethrins, but that only killed a few and then they would come back. The Met52 gives them a disease that spreads among the population, and they all die. It's like the Aphid Apocalypse in the greenhouse. The stuff is pricey, but I am always impressed at its effectiveness, all while being non-toxic to humans. I know pyrethrins have OMRI approved organic status, but I'm not sure that means that they are without hazard to the worker doing the spraying.
