I’ve never been a big fan of marigolds. I think they smell kind of funny, and I don’t really care for the color yellow. However, marigolds will always have a place in my garden. These amazing little flowers repel a slew of bugs that can harm your vegetable and fruit crops, such as aphids, root nematodes, and squash beetles. They also attract several varieties of insects that are helpful to gardens. Since pest control is one the hardest aspects of organic gardening, I truly appreciate all the hard work that the marigolds do, and for that, they are a beautiful addition to my vegetable patch, despite their yellow hue.
