Seeds of dreams (Register-Guard)
Cynthia Waters, an OSU Extension Service-Lane County Master Gardener, recommends planting marigolds around vegetable beds as a form of pest control. The flowers can be golden yellow, red or orange and require little care once planted, although they are not cold tolerant. Marigolds’ strong smell seems to discourage flying pests such as whiteflies, which attack tomatoes and peppers, and carrot flies.
