Snakes…

I thought it was interesting that one of our readers, Ansie, asked which plant to use to keep snakes away, “Wat kan ek plant in die tuin om die huis om slange wêg te hou?”. Ansie commented on ‘Snake Charms‘ and I suggested Wild Garlic (Tulbaghia violacea), apparently cultivated to keep snakes away from the home. Are there any other plants that would deter snakes from coming near the house?

Get wild with garlic!

I have just started looking at possibilities for a small garden in my flat and found that there is already a wild garlic plant growing…

We have already discussed its varied uses but it seems to have a few more….
