As an avid gardener and a viewer of Gardeners World I have noticed that none of the presenters appear to have trouble with midges. I am normally covered in bites do they use something special or am I unfortunate

Avon Skin So Soft possibly.
Well known repellent up here for 'the midge'.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
South East London
Some of us use Avon Skin So Soft. It's not sold as a repellant but it works.
In London. Keen but lazy.
I've had lots of gnat bites this year. We had a wet winter and, consequently, the garden has been unusually lush this year. I think all that extra foliage plus increased humidity has increased the number of bitey things. Seem to disturb them every time I get in there to do some cutting back.
Heaven is ... sitting in the garden with a G&T and a cat while watching the sun go down
I get bitten but by what I have no idea. Something even found the hole in my jeans! Never see anything that could possibly be the culprit. Usually leaves a nice red itchy spot.
I have pots of mint in the garden, some near the back door, and I don't get many in the house. This is good as I come up in big blisters from bites.
