Roses & Chives

Most people love roses. Growers and collectors have them in their gardens for the variety of their beautiful and fragrant flowers. But one of the challenges of growing good roses is that they also attract a range of pests and diseases. Aphids especially love roses, and traditional methods involve a regular spraying regime.

An alternative and inexpensive solution to this problem is to underplant the rose bush with small clumps of chives. The onion smell of the chives masks the smell of the growing rose shoot and acts as a deterrent to aphids. This sustainable method tricks their senses and the avoid roses.
