Plant These 15 Types Of Flowers To Keep Insects Out Of Your Garden
Alliums can keep aphids, cabbage worms, slugs, and more out of your garden due to the strong odor they release, which is pungent only to insects, not humans.
The bloom season for Alliums is late spring to early summertime, and they grow best in USDA growing zones 3 to 9. They require full sunlight and well-draining soil.
Petunias can also ward off insects. They require plenty of water, sunlight, and sandy soil to keep them healthy, and can be grown within USDA growing zones 10 and 11.
Research suggests that marigolds can be used to manage the growth and reproduction of nematodes. They need direct sunlight and enough room in order to thrive.
Marigolds, which bloom from early summer to late fall, require loamy soil and thrive in USDA growing zones 2 to 11. They should be watered when their soil is completely dry.
Floss Flowers
Floss flowers repel pesky insects like mosquitoes. They thrive in USDA growing zones 2 to 11 and need full sunlight and moist, rich, well-draining soil.
Lavender can ward off bugs specifically when made into an essential oil. Lavender oil contains linalool, a compound that is repulsive to mosquitos.
Lavender plants thrive in USDA growing zones 5 to 9 and in well-draining, slightly acidic soil. They must receive full sunlight daily, but they don't require frequent watering.
