Organic Pest Control Herb Seeds

Organic pest control by using plants can be implemented in two ways: Either pests are repelled by this plant, or they attracted and thus distracted from nearby plants. Responsible for this are fragrances that these plants exude and which act either as deterrent or attractive to the pests.
Lavender is planted, for example, next to roses to keep aphids away. Nasturtiums on the other hand are planted so that the aphids colonize them and spare the adjacent plants.
Chamomile, lilies, coreopsis, marigolds and coneflower combat nematodes. Scorpionweed (Phacelia), yellow lupine (Lupinus), buckwheat (Fagopyrum), red clover (Trifolium), winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus), sunflower (Helianthus), crimson clover (Trifolium incarnatum) and winter rye (Secale) function as green manure and improve the soil structure.
