2015_Day 249: Marigolds DO rock! 

 
My mom taught me that marigolds were a great flower to plant around tomatoes because their strong scent kept away some insects and sometimes even rabbits and squirrels. And until recently, that’s all I really ever used them for. But they were a great addition on their own to my Texas garden this year, and I really enjoyed their color, their tolerance for the heat (with a little TLC) and the fact that I could harvest their seeds by the dozen for replanting.

So I was pleasantly surprised to read a great post from blogger Sheri Bettine, who also has had her own issues with marigolds, but this summer had a great experience with the oft-aligned flower. “Marigolds are truly the ROCK STAR in my flower garden this year,” Bettine says. “They are the clear winner of all the flowers that I’ve planted…Marigolds ROCK.”

I so agree with Bettine. Marigolds DO rock! Read the rest of her post on her blog at sheribettine.com
