One of the best ways to keep your garden free from insects that are looking to snack on your vegetable leaves, is to attract larger insects.
You can easily attract bees, butterflies and ladybugs by planting flowers and herbs that will attract them to your garden.
Some of the best herbs for attracting insects are thyme, lavender, and lemon balm.
When choosing flowers you should pick a bright, fragrant variety. Some suggestions are sunflowers, poppies, cowslips, snapdragons, and honeysuckle.
This is a great way to decrease the intrusive insects while keeping your garden organic and free of pesticides.
