In my garden there are.......................
Most gardeners like to have a healthy flourishing garden, but for many pests can be an issue.
So this page in my journal, features some garden tips I cut out from a magazine, where there was a list of what to grow, where to plant it and how it would help our plants to grow.
It is a kraft paper journal so I used a base paint of watered down acrylic white, followed by a flower stencil coloured with distress inks.
Plant near tomatoes and their pungent smell
will keep white fly away.
My parents used to grow these and I can say from experience that
the smell is very unpleasant
But the tomatoes were fantastic.
Planted beside brassicas, the white flies choose to lay their eggs on the leaves. instead of your cabbages.
A big plus is that we can eat the flowers.
Poached Egg plants
Loved by beneficial insects like hoverfly,
the kind you want to encourage in your gardens
, their larvae will eat the blackfly and aphids.
I'm sure we have all been given ideas from gardening friends and its much better than the harmful chemicals we see on sale in the shops.
