The French Marigold flower is one of the more amazing ‘beneficial’ garden companions that will help a number of your garden plants to thrive with it’s potent pesticide-producing root system while also offering a rather strong aroma to confuse other pests. Just be sure not to plant them beside beans. It can have an herbicidal effect on some plants, such as beans and cabbage. I plant lots of them and they are cheerful and hardy plants that bloom until the first frost.
