I hate flies..

Not that Ive seen a lot around at the moment - clearly a wet summer overhere is keeping them at bay.

But, when they do come out, any ideas on plants flies dont like...and herbs?

    what about mint?

    my mother told me that keeping a pot of mint in the kitchen deters flies

    Country folk used to hang elder leaves in windows and doorways to repel flies, and also stick springs in a horses's bridle for the same reason.
