Hoverflies

Hoverflies, like lacewings, are savage consumers of aphids so are of unquestionable benefit to any kitchen gardener, regardless of the size of the site!

Provide a landing site for hoverflies with pussy willow, marigold and salad burnet. Like lacewings, they also love the apiaceae family, which includes wild carrot, yarrow and queen anne’s lace.
