What not to doThe biggest no-no for a butterfly garden is the use of chemical insecticides and pesticides because they harm the butterflies. Always use organic fertilisers – there are plenty readily available in the market –and for additional effect, plant a clump of lemon grass to ward away mosquitoes from the garden. Additionally, this means that plants like the rose (for example, Rosa chinensis) are banned from the garden because they require constant use of pesticides to protect them from bugs.

Mosquito-repellent plants Many plants deter bugs, though only within their immediate micro-climate: plant them in one corner of your garden and you’ll still find mosquitos in another. If you have window boxes or planters near your front or back door, fill them with mosquito-repellant flowers such as marigolds and geraniums, or herbs including lemongrass, lemon balm, citronella, lavender and rosemary, which are also great additions in the kitchen.

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) Dive into the exotic edibles with lemongrass, using it to season soups, teas and more. This strappy plant will thrive in full sun to partial shade with regular water. Though it may die down to the ground in winter, it will revive in spring. Lemongrass does best in mild climates, or it can be planted in a container and brought inside. Plant cuttings or divisions for best results.
