What's so special about our marigold?

Marigolds are the best companion plants around. They improve the soil, act as traps for pests, repel ants, and attract beneficial insects like ladybugs and hoverflies.

Sowing and growing

Growing marigolds is easy. 2 plants fit in a single 30x30 cm patch. Since they are such good companion plants, you can also put them under your trellis. Just tuck them between your zucchini or bean plants.

Marigolds sometimes develop white spots - mildew - at the end of the season. It’s nothing to worry about: simply cut off the affected leaves or stems. If the plants get too big and ugly, just remove some of the larger stems. The more you do, the more the plant will produce new flower stems.

Step-by-step growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.

How do you use marigolds?

Marigolds are great companion plants to your vegetables and a colorful addition to your garden.

The petals are edible, so you can use them in salads, rice dishes, and omelets.
