Lavender Blue

Great-grandma had the right idea. Plant lavender in pots and collect the flowers to use in sachets. Keep them in your drawers and linen cupboards, in boxes of stored clothing, blankets etc to keep them smelling sweet and fresh and help repel silverfish and moths.
Hang sprigs of lavender tied in bunches on the hanging rail in your wardrobe and tie them to coat hangers to scent your clothes all year round. Lavender sachets are expensive to buy, but you can have fresh ones every year if you grow your own.
