What are good Insect repellent plants?
A friend of mine has asked me what is best to plant to keep mosquitos away or things that are good deterrent for these kind of bugs and flies near the patio? I have heard about lavender being good but has anyone got any good advice on what to plant or has had experience of using plants as a deterrent?
Flies come in different types. Some live on dead bodies, some on rotting fruit, some are attracted to living bodies and their blood, some to flower pollen. Difficult to know how to keep such a diverse group of insects at bay at any given time.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
