Marigold Aztec Mix Tagetes Patula Seeds
Packet of 100+ seeds!
Hardy edible bought years and years ago. Self seeds prolifically. Just sprinkle the seed in the right spot and let nature take over.
That is exactly what we did!
Edible and colorful addition to salads. Also, great for an aromatic tea that is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, liver cleansing” and “vitality boosting” apparently…
It is a great companion plant with just about everything.
Basil, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, gourds, kale, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, melons, pineapple and pepper you name it. Also, it is said to help with nematodes, scale hoppers and it does help keep the skinks and smaller lizards out of our strawberries (I wouldn’t mind if they ate the odd berry, but they used to bite each and every ripe fruit on the pointy end!)
To sum up, it’s good for salads, tea, bugs and bouquets!
P.S. If your sole purpose for the plant is for companion planting and insect control and not so much for ornamental reasons, then I highly recommend you check out our other marigold variety, Tagetes Minuta or Huacatay.
