Plant for Beneficial Insects

daisybeneficial plantsPlanting herbs and vegies, especially those with daisies and umbels, for beneficial insects.

These flowers are made up of clusters of many tiny, individual flowers, tightly bound individuals in daisies, and held more loosely and open in the umbels.

Although they look different, they have one thing in common – lots of pollen and nectar, which are a magnet for insects!  Including these flowers in and around your vegetable garden will attract beneficial insects and pollinators, which in turn will deal with most insect pest problems and also help with increased harvests through pollination.
