By Kathleen Cue, Nebraska Extension Horticulture Educator
September is the best month for transitioning our houseplants from the outdoors to inside. At this time of year, we don’t have the impending crunch of time when frost is imminent and our only choice is to hastily move plants indoors. By planning ahead, we have the time to pay attention to our houseplants by pulling away dead leaves, chasing out the spiders and checking plants for damage by critters. By waiting until frost is imminent, our haste increases chances of accidentally bringing in aphids, whiteflies, scale insects and mealybugs, exposing unaffected plants to a possible infestation.
The Master Gardener Horticulture Helpline is available to answer gardening questions and to take samples for identification/diagnosis during the following times and days. The helpline is a service to everyone, regardless of what county they are from.
