Help to keep pests at bay with beautiful companion plants
Companion planting is a traditional and natural way to deter pests from crops that you are growing and to attract good insects such as hoverflies, lacewings and ladybirds which are the best natural predators of aphids and whitefly. Our little companion plant pack is a great way to get started and not only do the plants look lovely when interspersed with your vegetables, they all have the advantage of being edible too.
With 30 plants in total, this pack contains the following plants:
Tagetes x 10
Plant tagetes close to your tomatoes, peppers and aubergine to deter whitefly. They also look very pretty when in flower. The petals have a distinctive zesty flavour and can picked and used fresh to garnish salads.
Marigold x 10
The strong colour of marigolds attracts beneficial hoverflies, lacewings and ladybirds. Plant them in amongst your crops or next to rows of veg. The flowers and leaves have a mild citrus flavour and can be used to garnish salads or desserts.
Nasturtiums x 10
Nasturtiums secrete a mustard oil that insects love, plant them as a sacrificial crop close to brassicas to deter caterpillars. A wonderful pretty companion plant with edible leaves and petals which have a distinctive peppery taste.
