Repelling Unwanted Insects 

There are lots of biological ways to naturally repel unwanted insects from different areas of your garden.

  • Planting onions and leeks next to carrots will deter carrot fly.
  • French Marigolds will ward off greenfly and blackfly - plant them next to your tomatoes.
  • Ants can sometimes become a problem with plants that are planted directly into the ground. Plant peppermint, bay leaf or garlic to deter them.
  • Mice can be deterred by planting an elder shrub.
  • Snails and slugs can be caught in a beer trap - a little sip and they become drunk and drown.
  • Nasturtiums will deter aphids.
