marigolds: what’s not to like

Tagetes erecta (African marigold) and Tagetes patula (French marigold) – they may be one of my favorite flowers (one of about 8,000). I just love the smell of them. To me it is very strong. A bitter, pungent, distinctive smell. It goes great with the smell of tomato plants. The only thing I dislike is too many of them in one place.

  • Very nice. You are fortunate not to have had a frost yet. We had our killing frost, and all that is left to do is clean up, clean up, clean up!
