Someone remarked in another post that it seems to be a bad year for moths of all sorts (well, a good year if you happen to be a moth). We have problems with lawn moths, tomato moths and leek moths, and possible plum moths too.

I was wondering ...I know that house moths (clothes moths) are deterred by the scent of lavender. Does anyone know whether lavender can be used to deter any garden moths? Companion planting won't work for vegetables that get rotated, but I recently cut back a couple of big lavender bushes and tried scattering some clippings around the tomatoes and the leeks.

Is this likely to help at all, do you think? And if anyone has any tips on dealing with lawn moths, I'd be very grateful!
