I grow plants on a terrace with an overhang in an apartment building on 8th floor. I like to plant petunias in flower boxes, but every year they get infested with aphids and white flies. I buy the plants from different sources and I use good fresh soil each spring. What can I do to prevent these pests from coming? How can I get beneficial bugs to eat them? Can one buy the bugs?
