I usually plant marigolds all through out garden, one here, and one there,.....to attract bees. Sometimes, the bees build their hive in the ground, in the garden.
I usually support my local greenhouses, and purchase my plants from them. Past few years, they stopped growing their own plants, and ordered from a large company, that the big home improvements use as well. Not a good quality of a plant. So, this year, I planted all my seeds, close to two hundred plants so far, in containers. Built a make shift temporary greenhouse. Pondering a winter project of a more permanent one. The joys of gardening.
