Be in the Garden

My partner and I have a nice size garden this year, about 15% bigger than last. I am mainly concerned w/powdery mold that gets on my flowers and spider mites that migrate over here and there....Is it too late to get Ladybugs? We had some in June and now they seem to have left? I just tried sodium bicarbonate on some powdered mold on a few plants a few eves ago, but can't tell if it worked yet. Any advice out there??

Meg: Try watering from below, with either drip irrigation or wicking beds. Watering from above ie sprinklers, encourages powdery mildew
