Marigolds

I planted a large pot of Africian Marigolds on my deck. I learned from the internet they help repel mosquitoes.

Whether or not they repel mosquitoes, that's a beautiful pot of flowers.

Great marigolds! You did an excellent job growing them.
My many marigolds never seemed to repel mosquitoes.
When the mosquitoes get bad I carry a spray bottle full of alcohol and knock them out of the air, then step on them when they hit the sidewalk.
