This Marigold is grown to repel or kill harmful nematodes in the soil. We have had great success growing tomatoes in a bed of these marigolds. Normally tomatoes are attacked and severely damaged by nematodes in our area of Florida. This Marigold also tolerates the sub-tropical climate. Plant around nematode susceptible plants.
