How to Repel Insects with plants: 6 Insect Repellent Plants to Grow; repel mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, fleas, and more
6 PLANTS THAT REPEL INSECTSFeverfewFeverfew is great for repelling mosquitoes and other flying biting insects. It is ideal for planting around outdoor seating areas, pathways and close to doorways and windows; for maximum benefit, plant in conjunction with citronella grass and lavender (see below).In addition to its insect repellent qualities, feverfew also has many medicinal uses. It is historically used to help treat nervous disorders, headaches and it also works as a laxative and helps ease bloating.Pyrethrum also known as ChrysanthemumPyrethrum helps to repel a whole host of insects and bugs, including: aphids, leafhoppers, spider mites, harlequin bugs and ticks.Pyrethrum is best used as a ‘companion plant’ to protect other plants with its insect repellent properties. It is planted close to plants which are affected by the insects above.Additionally a natural pesticide can be made with pyrethrum flowers. The flowers need to be dried and crushed and mixed with water. It is beyond the scope of this article to give specific instructions on potency etc., so please carry out further research before trying this, as even though the pesticide is completely natural, it can still be harmful to humans in certain situations.PennyroyalPennyroyal helps to repel mosquitoes, gnats and also ticks and fleas!Pennyroyal is often used in commercial natural insect repellent creams and sprays. Pennyroyal is great to plant in the garden, but it is best utilized as a topical insect repellent applied to the skin.If you crush pennyroyal leaves and rub them onto your skin, this acts as an effective insect repellent. Additionally, you can also crush the stems and put them in pockets, bags and hats.Crushed pennyroyal leaves and stems can also be rubbed on dogs to help repel ticks and fleas. Actually you will often see dogs rubbing in pennyroyal patches when outdoors.LavenderLavender is most useful for repelling mosquitoes and gnats when planted in the garden; it can also be planted in pots and placed by doorways and windows. As with feverfew and citronella grass; lavender is best planted in the garden around seated and eating areas and also around windows and doors.Cut and or dried lavender can also be placed on windowsills to stop mosquitoes entering the house. Additionally, dried lavender flowers can also be used in wardrobes to repel moths and keep clothes smelling fresh.Lavender also smells amazing and has many medicinal properties, it aids relaxation and helps promote restful sleep.MarigoldsAs with pyrethrum, marigolds are best used as a ‘companion plant’ to help protect other plants; however, marigolds do also have some mosquito repellent properties, so it’s a bit of an all-rounder.Marigolds contain a chemical compound called thiopenes in the roots. This plant repels aphids, cabbage maggots, white flies and many other pests. Marigolds are particularly good at protecting tomato plants.Citronella grassCitronella grass is an old favourite; everyone knows it is commonly used as an insect repellent in outdoor candles, which are used around outdoor eating and seating areas. Citronella grass is a great mosquito repellent and it can be planted and used in a similar way as citronella candles, to keep flying insects away.For best results, plant citronella grass in the garden and use in conjunction with feverfew and lavender.Additionally, citronella grass has also been found to have a calming effect on barking dogs, which is worth considering if you have a dog which barks excessively day and night. Your neighbours might thank you for at least giving it a try!

For Mom: The Very Best Homemade Ant Killer Recipe - Domestic DIY
Best Homemade Ant Killer: You'll need: 1 cup of sugar; 1/2 cup of water; 1 Tablespoon of Borax. Mix it all together! If you have pets or kids, you'll want to keep the solution away from them. One idea is to put it in an old plastic container with holes poked in the lid for the ants to get in & put a little bit of plain sugar water (no Borax) outside of container to lure ants over.

Water Tomatoes After Planting in Pizza Garden
Water deeply. Your veggie garden will need about an inch of water a week; if enough rain hasnt fallen, water till the top 6 inches of soil are wet. Simply wetting the soils surface with daily watering doesnt reach most of the root zone and is harmful to plants. Saturate the soil around the base of tomato plants and avoid getting the foliage wet to reduce the chances of foliar diseases. (Top 10 Rules for Spring Gardening)

DIY Decorative Garden Balls. I particularly like the penny ball, as it keeps away snails. I don't think that I would make it using a bowling ball. Something smaller and lighter. And make a few.

Dahlia flower means “valley,” is a reference to Andreas Dahl, though it unclear as to why the flower received his surname instead of being named after one of the first Spanish botanists to study the flower. Dahlia flowers belong to the Asteraceae family, a group that includes sunflowers, asters and daisies. “Asteraceae” means “star,” referring to the star shape of the dahlia blossom.
