Uses for marigolds:
Marigolds make good companion plants especially in vegetable gardens as they tend to chase away insects which attack your vegetables. Not only does the scent of the marigold repel animals and insects, but the underground workings of the marigold will repel nematodes (microscopic worms) and other pests for up to 3 years.
