7 Flowers To Plant In The Garden For Natural Pest Control

When planning your garden leave room for plants that act as pest control and that will attract beneficial insects that will control pests and as attractants for the pollinators.

   Not only do you get the pest control value from them but they add a beautiful splash of color to your gardens. I use  diatomaceous earth a lot for natural pest control but these help and add some pretty color to the garden as well.
