Flea beetle deterrent!

Last year I lost all my pak choi and turnip tops to flea beetle, but I've unwittingly grown a plant they hate!
Wormwood! Its the one they flavour absinthe with, the seeds were part of a package deal so I've a whole tray of them just about ready to prick out.
After a bit of googling to see if it has any uses, I came across the flea beetle info!
I shall plant them in strategic places, but not near herbs as the pungent smell
can taint them.  

Well worth knowing Stanley
