Chilli Bug Off


Even if you don’t like spicy foods, you should plant a row of hot chilli plants in your garden for their bug repelling effects.

Place a handful of dried, hot peppers in the food processor, seeds and all, and grind to a dust. Wear rubber gloves and take care not to get the dust on your skin or eyes. Sprinkle around garden plants to repel ants, slaters and other pests.

The chilli plants are attractive and make good borders for garden beds as well as being productive and useful in the garden.
