>>2323514
Perhaps there is no gf due to your insecurities, such as being emasculated by growing nice flowers?

Mosquitoes are best controlled more aggressively than with plants. Traps, removing standing water and mosquito bits (Bacillus thuringiensis strain israelensis) in any potential standing water. Unfortunately, propane mosquito traps work well but are constructed shittily and break often and you're out $300 because the companies can't build the things properly. Also mosquito incense sticks. You can also bathe in chemicals or wear a mesh outfit if you feel like being uncomfortable.

Why are you concerned about spiders? They're garden bros.

Lavender is a slightly hard to grow you may need to cold stratify it for good germination.

What are some good non-toxic flowers I can grow to eat? I've always wanted to eat an unreasonable amount of flowers in one sitting till I'm full.

What's emasculating about making nice plants?

>grow lavender and peppermint to keep mosquitoes and especially spiders at bay.
well that just won't work. I don't know who told you a plant is going to drive off mosquitoes or spiders, but they were lying.

Marigolds are a natural mosquito deterrent.
But it takes a lot of them.
Citronella is also plant based.

Waiting til the last freeze but I'm trying to think of something to put in my 3 remaining smallish pots. One of the pots is really really small because I tried and failed to keep a venus alive.
Already have basil, catnip and wheat grass.
Any suggestions?
Prefer herbs but I'm open to ideas

Its not to the extent that images get her, physical instances with them do though. more like trying to keep them out the house.

She should get over it with exposure therapy. I don't know where in the world you live. But continental US there's like 2 spiders to be remotely worried about. Both easily identified. Worst case with the others, you accidentally pinch one and it bites in reaction and nothing happens.

They're good in the house. They eat pests.

In support of your anti-spider mission, though, if you dehumidify to 35%-ish indoors, pests AND spiders will slowly decrease in population.

>>2324106
Why would you want to drive away the spiders that eat the mosquitoes in the first place?
>>
It was almost 70° when I cleaned up my flower garden, now it's fucking snowing.
Luckily everything I've planted is pretty much idiot proof, and really hardy.
