Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants & bury in the ground. I have been doing this for a few years & works great for containing plants that tend to spread, but that I still want to plant in the garden. This also works good for planting a plant in an area that tends to get filled with roots etc. from other plants.
Aphids . Environmentally effective ways to control Aphids. These are great tips, however there is one missing: after knocking the aphids off by spraying the affected plant with a strong stream of water, allow it to dry and coat the plant with a layer of Neem Oil. This prevents the aphids from re-infesting the plant. Works every time.
