Golden Guardin Marigold- Natural Wonder-Working Beetle and Nematode Repeller
Dorsey Howard from VA wrote on March 30, 2020

I've grown these Park Seed Golden Guardian Marigolds for several years. I plant the seeds directly into the garden soil inside my 40x40x40ft. garden fence line here in south central Virginia. This year I planted them in early March and they're about a half inch tall as I write this on March 30th. By early to mid Summer they are covered with beautiful small golden blossoms. The entire plant exudes a pungent marigold fragrance. It repels beetles and nematodes perfectly. I alternate the marigolds with my tomatoes and green beans. These marigolds are tall, not the little ornamental variety, so I have to cage or stake mine later in the season. Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies love the blossoms. They last until frost. I've used these natural beetle/nematode repellent flowers for several years and I have not found even a single harmful beetle in my garden. Not one Japanese Beetle or Mexican Bean Beetle and no aphids All without the use of harmful chemicals. I highly recommend Golden Guardian Marigolds for your veggie garden.

Best Natural Pest Repellent
Dorsey Howard from VA wrote on February 27, 2020

I've planted Golden Guardian marigolds interspersed among my tomato plants for that last seven years. Not once during that time have i found a single aphid,bean beetle or any other harmful insect in my garden. Not a single Japanese beetle either. The marigold plants are care-free and grow abundantly. I've been a gardener for 50 years and this is my favorite discovery as far as pest/insect prevention is concerned. I challenge you to try them. Bees, hummingbirds and butterflies love them too.

My Summer cover crop
Rick Small backyard gardener. 10 in ground beds; 3 x 30 ft. ro from SC wrote on June 08, 2019

I plant in every spot I do not have vegetables. Have my tomatoes in concrete wire cages with 6 in. of straw under plants and in cages. Beds are 3 x 30 ft., all area outside of cages are planted in these marigolds. Reasons; no weeds, shading roots of tomatoes. Later till in to fight root knot nematodes. Three other beds completely covered with these marigolds.No other plants of any type, not even weeds.Root knot nematodes will not feed on these .At about 3 ft. tall cut and till in to retard nematodes. Can plant tomatoes here next Summer.

A floriferous gem

So free-flowering one hardly misses the double blooms of other species. A long-lasting variety. Does have a tendency to flop over, but this isn't much of a problem in late season, when most competing plants begin to fade. It took two successive frosts to finish off our Golden Guardians this year.
