When we learned more about Marigold we fell in love with the flower all over again. When we first began the garden we had a huge ant problem. The ants came out in a full fledge army not just a few. They were moving significant amounts of soil and uprooting plants and seedlings by digging from bottom up right in their pots. So, when we learned that ants disdained them, we got several seed packets and placed them strategically around the garden. It took some time but our ant problem was soon reduce to almost non existent. When one first starts gardening, one wonders will these organic remedies work? Am I doing it right? We have remained true to our organic journey and did not use any chemicals while growing our plants. The Marigolds have been no exception. In fact they helped us along our organic journey.
Many neighbors and gardening cohorts come by from time to time to view the plants in containers and the garden. When one of our neighbors came over and saw the marigolds he immediately put in an order. They are coming along very nicely as one can see. Once they have grown and are more easily managed, they will go home to his mother. Want to take a plant of your own home? Shop our plants. Would you like to start your own garden? Wonderful!
