First off this is my very first attempt to have a garden with actual
non-tree plants in it so forgive my stupidity
I am terrified of spiders and bought a house which I now know if
infested, removed ivy and everything which seemed to breed them and
looking to put plants which wont attract them back infact wanting to
Got a little rockery which had some trees removed and have no idea what
I am putting in there yet but I have thought about a border around the
house and some potted plants for decking.
2 plants that are meant to be good for this is lavender and peppermint.
Hoping this isnt a myth as it seems a contradiction that it attracts
bee's which is great but repels spiders which would like to get their
hands on the bee's. However looks to be more than one type of each and
not sure what to get and based on the terrible weather we have this year
how successful these are likely to be.
Lavender there seems to be lots of types but looking to get non-bushy
one to plant a border around the house, Am I right for dampness I need
to get these in planters rather than actually around the house?
The other is Peppermint, seems to be 2 common types for seeds Mentha x
piperta & Black Peppermint, see plenty pictures of a peppermint plant
flowering and looks good, however, the pictures on amazon and ebay dont
show flowers and checking with owners on amazon who have bought them
they dont flower. idiot question of the day how can you work out which
will flower and how long do they flower for?
Thanks in advance
