Daria from DE wrote (January 30, 2012):
This plant will not disappoint. It looks exactly like its picture and even though it arrived fairly small it began to bloom quickly then didn't stop until late fall. I planted it in early summer and by fall it was about a foot in diameter and had had hundreds of blooms. Last year my location had several months of drought followed by the wettest August and September on record (20+" of rain between those 2 months), I planted it during the drought, just dug a hole in a grassy area and planted it. No fertilizing, very little watering, soil was dry and filled with wood chips from a tree that had recently been removed and the stump ground up. This plant flourished so well I ordered 3 other types of Coreopsis in the fall to plant around the first one in hopes their blooms will mingle.

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.
