Marigolds are a great companion plant for pretty much all garden plants, blooming or edible. Their roots contain thiopene which is toxic to certain nematodes.  Plant marigolds around the outside of your garden to discourage aphids  and beetles from stopping by for and all you can eat smorgasbord.  On the flip side, marigolds will also attract beneficial insects that will snack on the insects that are feasting on your plants.  Beans, carrots, cabbages and tomatoes are just a few plants that benefit from having marigolds as a companion plant.

      Thanks for visiting our website and my apologies for not answering sooner.

      There are a lot of variables that need to be considered when growing annuals in pots such as location, water, fertilizer, pests, the size of the pots, etc. Without knowing why they might be dying, it is hard to answer your question. The leading cause of plants dying is usually due to over watering.

      To answer your question, no, they should not die in pots at the same time and in the same way every year.

      Hope this helps and thanks again for stopping by our website.
