I thought I’d share some techniques to prevent pests from eating your freshly planted gardens. There are super plants that can help to keep garden pests at bay and attract beneficial insects. This cuts down on the use of fertilizers and other chemicals that we do not wish to use in our gardens. After all, we do keep honeybees and have chickens roaming the place! The list is by no means comprehensive, but I wanted to share what I have picked up along the way in my gardening adventures. I started with well known plants that are recognizable to most gardeners and are also readily available at most local nurseries. Pest control using plants. So simple.
