basil grown near tomatoes acts as a sacrifice plant for white fly to attack instead, basil and tomatoes also grow well together as in companion planting and the tomatoes taste much nicer when grown with basil.
You can also grow marigolds with Tomatoes as these also help to keep the white fly away. Lynette100, I also to took over from my Dad when he died, thats how I really got into gardening.
