Lilies of the valley, periwinkle and mint will become defenders of the flower garden

Weeds are not only harmful to garden crops, they can also damage flower beds. The good news is that individual flowers can stop the growth of harmful weeds by themselves and make it much easier to care for the flower garden.

OBOZREVATEL tells you which plants can be used in this way. They will allow you to get rid of weeds in an environmentally friendly and effortless way.

Lily of the valley

By its behavior, this delicate spring flower is a weed itself. Lilies of the valley grow well in the shade and on moist soil and, as a rather invasive species, effectively suppress the growth of competitors. The place where the flower is planted will need to be thinned out regularly as it tends to grow strongly.

Periwinkle, isotoma, loosestrife and other "living carpets"

Plants that are able to quickly cover a fairly large area inhibit the development of any competitors by their very nature. The advantage is that their spread is easy to control, so they will not conquer the entire flower garden but will help control its condition.

Mint

This aromatic herb can suppress the development of weeds and will scare away pests due to its smell. Yes, mint does not have spectacular flowers. However, due to the pleasant shade of its leaves, it beautifully complements other plants. In addition, it can be used in cooking. That is, mint in the flowerbed is beneficial in every way.
