French Marigold Seeds
French marigold seeds are relatively easy to germinate. They should be sowed in the spring after the last frost. Marigolds should be planted in full sun. You can also start them indoors 6 weeks before the last frost.
The French marigold is a must have for every garden. The plant acts as a natural pesticide which makes them great for use in companion planting. They are excellent at deterring nematodes. Nematodes are worm-like bugs that live in the soil and attack the root systems of plants. The flowers will also deter white flies, and some species of beetles. Marigolds are not a perfect solution on their own for deterring pests. A garden should have various herbs and flowers to attract a wide range of predator insects. Predator insects are important as they will prey on various pests.
