Popular bedding plants, marigolds are best known as either 'French' or 'African' types. These hardy annuals are easy to grow and the plants stand up to all weathers, rain or shine and are smothered in beautiful flowers. Some marigolds repel white fly on tomatoes in greenhouses or outdoors too - grow them next to your tomato plants for maximum effect.
Marigold 'Tomato Growing Secret'
Tagetes patula, French MarigoldCanny gardeners have been growing white fly repelling African and French marigolds alongside their tomatoes for decades. But we know that some marigolds make better white fly deterrents than others, and we’ve discovered the best there is! We’re keeping the variety name under wraps, but we’re happy to make it available to serious tomato growers. Try it this season alongside greenhouse and outdoor tomatoes - you’ll even see your tomato plants grow better and bear more fruit with our marigolds around them.
