  1. Good pest deterant

    By Pamela Martin 20-08-2011

    I sew tagetes every year as they are good to plant in and around tomatoes and other flowers in borders to deter pests. They don't appear as popular as some plants but I think they are an essential flower, especially for the gardener who prefers to try natural means for detering pests. They are easy to grow and flower all summer long & seeds are generally good value for money too! Can't go wrong!
