 So sorry these episodes are late my friends!

The humble marigold is often the favorite flower of vegetable gardeners, and there’s great reason: marigolds help to keep many different pests at bay. They flower near-continually from late spring through the fall as long as you remove spent blooms. And they’re pretty.

But how do marigolds create that pest-eliminating environment? Are there plants that you shouldn’t grow around marigolds, and if so, which ones? And is there a right way to grow marigolds?

Let’s explore this fascinating species of flower in depth and go over everything you need to know to grow them properly!

Podcast Sponsor: Four Sigmatic

I've been a fan of Four Sigmatic for a while, so when they decided to send out some product and sponsor the cast, I was overjoyed. They make "drinking mushrooms." Delicious and easy to mix mushroom coffees, mochas, hot cacaos, and elixirs.

I'm a big fan of the Lion's Mane Coffee and the Hot Cacao with Reishi - the perfect way to bookend a day.
