Section II Woman's World VOL. 43, NO. 170 Wednesday, March 9, 1966 13 Garden Club Report — Herb Gardening Will Help Control Plant Pests (EDITOR'S KOTE: TbS* la the first In » series of four articles, "Keeping Insects Out With Plants" prepared by Mrs. Jimnile Sanders for a recent meeting of the Morrell Park Garden Club.) Pests are nothing new. They may just be more troublesome today. Although spraying kills oft the weaker specimen, the tough ones live on to breed. No one can tell you, "Do this or that, and you'll be 100 per cent rid of pests." Suppose in insect could possibly survive in your garden — in no nook or cranny even—it would be a poisonous place indeed, where useful insects could not live, nor birds, nor bees, nor toads, nor you. There is really no use to panic when you find pests since there are so many ways to us< ENGAGEMENT of Linda DaHene Herrmgfon to Daniel Burdett Botkin is announced by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H.

One can't be too nonchalant a- x>ut pests though. That implies -arelessness. Many herbs serve as "Pest Control." I have never seen insects or pests swarming over an herb. (But bees do.) I can't recall seeing a single pest nibbling on its strong - smelling, strong- tasting leaves. It would be well to plant various herbs in many places about the garden for maximum protection. Certain herbs help expecially with certain crops. Basil help? protect the tomato from both pests and diseases. Dark opal (reddish - purple leaf) is much more pungent than the green leaved variety. Transplant seedlings about one foot apart in a row alongside tomatoes. Pinch back main stem early for bush\ plants. Savory is the "bean herb." There is a summer savory (annual) and a hardy winter type. The first is less strong in taste and usually preferred for cooking and seasoning use. Start the fine seeds in a flat. Later, space the young seedlings at intervals in the furrow in place of a bean, when you plant that crop. The mature plant is slightly shorter high. This fragrant family at- Uian bush beans. The mint keeps pests from the cabbage family. Spearmint is what most people already grow, but there are many others. Some of the best include peppermint, applemint. lemon or orange mint, some times called bergarnont (an elegant - looking plant with violet spikes.) European Penny-royal (raentha pulegium; is a creeping herb with long flower stalks. tracts bees. (Thyme honey is greatly prized) and is effective as a pest repellent, although probably not so much as rue. (It is more use/ul in the kitchen, though, seasoning fish, meat, stuffing and vegetables. Thyme is a perennial. Oregano is especially effective near vine crops including cucumbers and melons. Oregano makes good ground cover for steet; banks. Insects dislike its "peppermint j Other herbs include lavende: fragrance." Where they are, pest don't like to go. Tansy aids fruits. It keeps Jap-1 anese beetles from the crop. It has a strong characteristic odor that pests don't like. Tansy is tall. A mature plant may slant four feet and spread with a showy, fern - like foliage. Rue is a hardy perennial about two feet in height, very attrac- rive to loog at and very ofien- sive to pests. Rue has powerful properties and very bitter blue- green, leaves. Rue spreads readily, will help dispel insect troublemakers among vegetables, flowers, shrubs or fruits. The thyme comprises many varieties from low ground covers to shrubby plants a foot or more •vhich is pretty and has a strong cool, clean smell. It has soft gray foliage and grows well among stones. It is not reliably hardy. Lemon balm gets weedy if not cut back often, and it grows to two feet. Mulched balm survive; cold winters.
