I've been growing Clematis for three years, three have run crazy with our NW UK weather this year. A group one facing west, though generally good, this year flowered well, and is now touching the roof eaves. Next ,at the rear of the property facing east, is currently a mass of blooms, in flower 6 weeks. Whilst at the top of the garden facing south is one extending some 15 ft along the fence ,- Good flowering now . First season here. Clematis Montana Odorata is situated some 20 feet to the left of the previous plant. It has only been in the garden about ten weeks. When bought, it was 3 feet high a decent specimen. It has taken up its new home OK. This variety should flower Late Spring/early Summer. Hence I did not expect any flowers this year.

A fav since teenage. In the climate of Boise, ID, took it a while to get going--this year magnificent--covered with gorgeous sweet pink flowers. I could easily catch the fragrance when passing by. To me they smelled more sweetly sugary than vanilla. A definite MUST for clem. lovers.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
