Marigold is probably one of the most popular ornamental flowers in Indian households. But did you know that these sweet-smelling yellow and orange flowers are also great companion plants. They attract friendly insects such as butterflies and bees while repelling the unwanted pests like mosquitoes and nematodes,keeping you and your plants safe.

You can start their seeds in soil or a seedling tray. Marigolds are fast growing plants and will be mature in no time. Just ensure that the plant receives 5-6 hours of direct sun for a good bloom.

Marigolds are also very easy to care for. At the beginning, you will have to be careful not to overwater or underwater them, but once they reach a foot in height, they become drought resistant.
