Horehound: Did You Know?...

Horehound (a member of the mint family) is an excellent companion plant for tomatoes and peppers because it stimulates and aids in fruiting!

Horehound's tiny flowers
attract Braconid & Icheumonid wasps, and Tachnid & Syrid flies. The larval forms of these insects pray on many other insect pests.

This year, why not give horehound a try in your tomato patch?
