Nothing is more irritating to me than seeing plants labeled with misleading or outright false information. In the case of plants labeled as ‘mosquito repellents’ (ex. citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, mints, catmint, and lemon balm) these are sadly, inflated claims.
If you want to have a wonderful garden for next year, prepare now with all those fallen leaves around your house! Did you know that up to 80% of a tree’s nutrients and minerals are pulled into the leaves? Adding them to your garden is a great way to replace those nutrients back into the soil.
