Would spraying oil on citrus trees help before a frost?

In Galveston County we expect a light freeze in 4 or 5 days.
Will it do any good to spray now with neem or agricultural oil at this time?
By the way the citrus presentation by Dr. Monte Nesbitt was very impressive with excellent detail information.

Sq foot garden overhead drip sys.

Are plans available for an overhead combo PVC drip system and netting/plastic support structure? Something to use for inclement weather (i.e. cold, hot, insects etc:).

Black Moon Amaryllis

Why are the leaves of my Amaryllis falling over? I planted it in Dec and it seemed to be doing great. And one day a leaf just fell over. Then it stood back up the next day. Then they all fell over. I have it planted inside and turn on a grow light during the day because my windows are tinted .I water it with rain water when it dries out at least two to three inches below surface.

The best combination

I'd like to know what combination of aquatic plants would be best to achieve the most efficient ecosystem in my region. I'm currently researching converting my detent pond in to a natural swimming pool and water garden. My goal is to clarify and provide my pond with the cleanest water possible.The pond covers approximately 1/4 acre with an average depth of 6'. Part shade in the early morning and late afternoon. Otherwise, full sun from 10am to 4pm. I have a few small cypress trees in a 6sf area that provide cover all day.
