Keep garden pests out of your summer garden by growing these naturally pest-repellent plants.

Summer is here and gardeners everywhere are celebrating the season of fresh, nutritious home-grown veggies! But along with our beautiful gardens come pesky garden pests…

You can use natural barriers such as netting or row cover to keep pests off of your plants, but you can also plant pest-repelling companion plants that will help deter specific pests from your garden. You can surround your garden with a barrier of a number of these pest-repellant plants, or plant selected varieties next to your crops that have specific pest problems.

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
