In a recent post, I shared a photo of my new garden bed, snug up behind the front fence. The strawberries that we received for free have gone in one half. I’ve also planted some flat leaf parsley and coriander, to serve kitchen needs.
The remaining space is being devoted a mix of flowers and herbs that serve a variety of purposes:
- Borage – companion plant to strawberries, good bee forage
- Chamomile – deters flies and mosquitoes, can be used as a fungicide spray
- Hyssop – trap plant for cabbage moth, plant away from brassicas, good for bees
- Pyrethrum – can be made into a natural insectiside
