two unrelated questions

  1. I have what I think are mealybugs on my broccoli. They are small, aphid-like bugs, but produce a dusty film. I'm not too concerned because my broccoli is done for the year. My question is this: If I cut down the plants and compost them, will the bugs contaminate my compost? Or should I discard them in some other fashion?
  2. I recently received a beautiful chrysanthemum as a gift...you know, the kind that comes from a florist. Since I don't really know the variety, I wondered if I might have some success planting it and having it come back next year and the year after, etc. I have some other mums in my garden. Has anyone done this? Of course, I know I could just try it and see what happens, but I wondered if there was a best time to plant that might give it a better survival potential...like before or after it's done blooming?
