locating plants for purchase
Well sweet annie isn't really insect repelling in the garden. You can dry it and use it to help repel insects in storage closets, etc, but it won't repel insects in the garden. It's a very easy plant to grow from seed and is related to our wild Queen Anne's lace. It needs full sun. You can buy seeds from Nichols Garden Nursery at nicholsgardennursery.com.
