Marigold

November 2013 flower of the month: Marigold




This is the time to plant these flowers because they are often used in companion planting for tomato, eggplant, chilli and potato as it is said they deter some common insect pests as well as nematodes. The Marigold foliage usually has a musky, pungent scent, though some varieties have been bred to be scentless.
