Best Flowers For Your Vegetable Garden June 30, 2015 07:42

Gardening is so good to do professionally and just as a relaxing hobby.  You can choose from many types, but there's nothing like a pleasant vegetable garden to gather and eat all of your very own fine vegetables.  These gardens can be complimented with planted flowers to aid and protect your vegetable growth.

It's amazing how much flowers can benefit your vegetable garden.  Flowers will entice more bees and pollinators into your garden, especially those that attract with their colors, such as white and yellow flowers.  They also can repel pests, which is the wrong kind of company for your garden to have. There's no guarantee that every flower will repel them, but it is worth experimenting. There are so many flowers to choose from, yet here are just a few of of the best flowers to help protect your vegetable garden!

Sunflowers - You may not have known that Sunflowers are great for vegetable gardens, but they are perfect for them.  They actually have an abundance of nectar to attract pollinators.  They are also excellent for climbing plants.  Sunflowers do attract squirrels,but a coarse leaved vegetable like squash planted beneath them, will help deter animals.

Marigolds - Marigolds are great flowers for vegetable gardens because they deter pests both above and below ground. You can simply create a ring of Marigolds around your vegetable garden and watch them work.  They repel squash bugs, tomato hornworms, thrips, and whiteflies.  This amazing flower also exudes a chemical that kills root nematodes in the soil.  Nematodes can be dealt with using Marigolds as well.  Marigolds will need to be planted a year in advance, and leave the roots in the soil when the season ends.

Lavender - Lavenders are beautiful flowers and they emanate a wonderful fragrance that is a repellent for several pests in a vegetable garden.  It prevents deer and mice because they don't like them.  It decreases the amount of ticks and moths find the Lavender's scent offensive.  You probably know that deer avoid it, but there are other insects and animals that stay clear away from Lavenders also.
