Nothing ruins an al fresco afternoon like an infantry of uninvited insects. Yikes! You can “fight the bite” with sprays, oils, candles, and other concoctions or you can create a mighty multi-tasking potted mix!
I absolutely adore this completely portable mix of potted plants that naturally repel a number of winged unwanted party guests. Check out this list of possible plants along with their fight features so you can create a custom mix based on your specific needs, or include them all for a broad range of protective plant power! Choose a smaller scale planter to make your mix more tabletop size. A mix of medium measure might be best for packing from front porch to back patio (because you know, you want to enjoy the plants’ protective properties from your morning mug of coffee on the porch to your evening glass of wine on the patio!)
Not only does this floral fusion fight for your freedom to enjoy the outdoors, it looks absolutely lovely. Bonus: This multi-tasking mix would make a marvelous gift for any porch-sitting pal!
