For centuries, concern has been used in ornamental and vegetable gardens to repel pests. It will help you grow in a healthier way.
Calendula officinalis is common in most healthy polycultures. They have been used for a long time as a companion plant. Generally, as a border plant to repel insects in ornamental gardens and vegetable gardens.
They are also known to fortify their neighbors. Concern produces a chemical substance in the roots that repels insects, which can repel root aphids. The effects can last for years.
The concern, as part of a guild of companion plants for your favorite plant, repels beetles and leafhoppers.
Mexican beetles and bad nematodes are also found in repelled insects. Their lush flowers attract species that feed on nectar. They also add their sweet scent to the discreet blend of smells of a healthy and diverse plantation.
Calendula will produce many seeds, like Marigold. When the flowers dry, cut them off and hang them upside down in bundles. The seeds are contained in the heads, and once dry and crisp, they can be lightly crushed by hand and gutted out of the seed ball.
