Keep Pests Out Of Your Edible Garden With This Fragrant Herb
Lavender is a potent plant that is both repulsive to pests and attractive to helpful insects like bumblebees and butterflies, making it the perfect companion plant.
It makes an especially good companion plant for tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, and herbs, and will ward off common pests such as aphids and moths.
Lavender’s scent also dissuades rodents like mice and other small animals from feasting on nearby edible plants, making it a great natural and safe pest repellent.
Conversely, lavender creates a hotspot for pollinators like bees and butterflies, helping to expedite the pollination process and boost the growth of your edible plants.
