Marigolds may be used as barrier plantings around vegetable gardens because many produce natural chemicals that deter pests, such as nematodes and slugs, and weeds. Keep soil evenly moist. Feed weekly with a balanced liquid fertilizer, following label directions. 0 To discourage powdery mildew and leaf spot, space plants for adequate air circulation and avoid wetting leaves when watering. Pick off diseased leaves where practical, and remove and destroy severely infected plants. 5?7 Marigold flowers are edible -- never use chemical sprays if you intend to eat them. Marigolds are native to Mexico and Central America but are popular around the world. The African types are characterized by taller plants and larger blooms, the French types by their smaller, more compact habit, and the signet type, by its delicate ferny foliage and its smaller 1/2 inch flowers. Start indoors 4?6 weeks before last frost or direct sow 1/8 inch deep 1?2 weeks after the last frost. Amend soil with compost or well-rotted manure before planting. Thin young plants to 15?18 inches apart. 0 Pinch off growing tips to encourage lateral branching and bushy plants. To prolong flowering period, shear plants when blooms are spent. Mulch to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. average, well drained 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 flowers 1 0 0 > 0 0 0 0
