•Aphids: Plant onions around plants susceptible to aphid infections, especially roses.
•Attracting Bees: To attract bees to your vegetable garden plant geraniums amongst your vegetables. Flowering herbs such as bee balm, borage and lavender also attract bees, plus can be used for their herbal qualities.
•Basil: Basil planted among tomatoes will enhance the flavour as well as keep bugs at bay. Remember many tomato recipes also call for basil.
