These big golden blooms control nematodes more effectively than chemical pesticides
Tested successfully in Holland, Golden Guardian Marigold is a marigold that packs a powerful punch—interplanted with vegetables (especially tomatoes), it is the most effective at killing harmful nematodes. With a 99% success rate over 3 months, Golden Guardian Marigold is even more effective than chemical pesticides. And the big, single-flowered golden-orange blooms are lovely.
Nematodes live in the soil, feeding on and damaging the roots of tomatoes and other young vegetables, resulting in reduced growth, yellowed and wilted plants, and poor yields. Marigolds have long been planted as a nematode repellent, but not until Golden Guardian Marigold has one been shown to actually be more effective at eliminating these pests than commercial pesticides. The natural way to grow beautiful blooms while protecting the vegetable crop, Golden Guardian Marigold belongs in every garden.
