What is the best way to bring potted plants indoors for the winter without insect hitchhikers?
I have been gardening only in pots this year and plan to bring viable plants indoors before the first freeze. I don't want garden pests and/or scorpions to contaminate my house or indoor plants. Many of them will become permanent houseplants.
Last winter I covered my aloe vera and other plants and kept them near the house walls for warmth, yet lost most of the plants anyway.
Any success stories, especially organic ones? Any ideas would be appreciated.
