Marigolds make good companion plants to repel bugs.

I love the idea of mixing flowers and vegetables. I know marigolds have helped keep away squirrels and some bugs. I harvest the seeds in the fall from the marigolds and store them in a dry place until next year.

Yellow, orange marigolds - Marigold flowers are known to give away a strong scent that helps in keeping away the bugs. Organic gardeners often grow marigold around their crops and plant to keep aphides and mosquitoes away.

Mexican Marigolds for deterring many pests, including deer, when planted at the outer edges of your garden. Burn marigold leaves as a tick repellent or obtain essential oils by steam distillation. Use the marigold plant externally to remove ticks from your skin. Soaps with marigold are excellent for your skin and candles made with marigold are perfect for aromatherapy.

What to plant next to what. I have to remember to plant marigolds to help control the squash beetles.
