What flowers are recommended for a vegetable garden to attract insects (bees, pest-killing insects, etc)?

I've been told that certain types of flowers in a vegetable garden can attract insects such as bees and pest-killing insects to assist with the production of crops.

And on that note, some flowers can be placed nearby to attract the pests away from the vegetable garden.

What are some recommended flowers for these tasks?

Answer: Dear Marty.

There are a number of plants such as Tansy, Borage, Lavender and Rosemany that will attract bees and beneficial insects into your garden.

You can also purchase beneficial insects through certain companies on-line or through your local nursery.
