Grow your own mosquito repellent plants in your garden.
It is possible to grow plants that mosquitoes keep away from. There are many but we list here three of the best available at good garden centres. They all give a smell that repel mosquitoes from areas of your home and garden.

Citronella is a perennial 'clumping' grass that grows to a height of 5 – 6 feet and can be grown directly in the ground in a frost-free climate. To avoid frost citronella can be grown in a large pot or planter, It is beneficial for the pot to be on casters so it can be rolled indoors during winter.
Sold as small plants in pots it is best to be transplanted into a larger pot. When established new plants, can in early spring be propagated by splitting large clumps into smaller pots then grown on. Like most grasses they do best in full sun and well in well drained pots. Feed with nitrogen-rich fertilizers once a year in early spring will ensure vigorous growth.
When purchasing citronella, look for the true varieties, Cybopogon nardus or Citronella winterianus. Citronella scented, do not have the mosquito repelling qualities of true citronella.



Horsemint also known as Beebalm is an adaptable perennial plant which repels mosquitoes much the same as citronella. It also gives off a strong incense-like odour that confuses mosquitoes by masking the smell of its usual hosts.
It is a fast growing, shade-tolerant and drought-resistant plant that reaches a height and width of 2 to 3 feet. Grow in a well dry and sandy soil, as it can tolerate salty conditions it is often found in coastal and beach areas.



Marigolds are commonly grown as ornamental border plants they are a hardy annual plants that have a distinctive smell which mosquitoes find particularly offensive. Marigolds contain Pyrethrum, a compound used in many insect repellents.

If you sooner go the simpler natural way then use our Lemongrass and Lime Repellent.
