I have back fill, and lavender was planted there, but it is straggly looking, help, want to save it cuz its under the bedroom window, but it is struggling there, I know it likes well drained soil, but it needs food too!
I think a fan would be more effective than anything you could plant. For all the talk about citronella, even that isn't really very effective.
This was a question posted under my question regarding a different subject. Hoping Beatrice finds an answer because I don't have one to help her!
LEMON GRASS!!! It keeps mosquitoes and gnats away very well.
This year I have been having good luck with Mosquito Shocker™ (largonium-crispum) in Minnesota. Fewer bugs than past years and fewer than the neighbors. I have 2 plants in pots on a 16'x20' deck.
Thank you for all of your suggestions! I'm going to give these a try!
