One of my favourite gardeners friends are the Ladybird. I’ve been pleased to see so many already busying themselves on the plot. And for some reason they were REALLY digging the Fennel.
Turns out that Bronze Fennel in particular like pictured is important for our early emerging 3 spot ladybugs. Plants like Bronze Fennel are prime aphid and ladybug attractor which also include dill, coriander, caraway, tansy, yarrow, wild carrot, coreopsis and scented geraniums. Are you doing your bit to look after your Garden Friends?
