Organic Gardening Tip #3: Marigolds

Are deer and rabbits a big problem in your garden? The solution is a simple one. Plant marigolds around your garden. The pungent odor helps detract certain insects such as aphids but also deer, rabbits and some other pest type mammals. They just don't like the smell, color or taste of these stinky flowers. Marigolds are also useful in other ways too. They can be used in topical remedies for things such as chicken pox. I wrote about this before last summer. So plant some marigolds. Not only are they pretty but they are very very helpful!
