I once planted a border along the path in my back garden with lavender. It attracted many bees and also hoverflies. I went to the line with a basket of washing one day, wearing a full-skirted summer dress.Within seconds, I was doing the can can all around the garden, lifting my skirt in a most un-grandma-like way while shrieking and attempting to give the bees ands hoverflies a way back out of the large tent which had inadvertently enveloped them.
I took out the lavender. From the border, not merely from under my skirt.
