THANK YOU

BRENDA / Barefootintexas

Here are the pictures from Brenda's demonstration

CUT 3 HOLES IN THE COCONUT LINER

TAKE 3 TOMATO PLANTS - REMOVE MAJORITY OF THE DIRT FROM ROOTS

PUSH TOMATO PLANT THROUGH THE HOLE & POSITION WHERE THE STEM IS ALSO INSIDE THE BASKET

YOU CAN SEE HOW BRENDA & THE GIRLS PLACED THEM INTO THE BASKET

TAKE MARIGOLDS & PLANT THEM IN THE TOP OF THE BASKET.

THE FLOWERS WILL HELP TO DETER THE BUGS

FINISHED PRODUCT

BRENDA HOLDING UP FINISHED BASKET & GIFTS IT TO ERIN OUR NEW GARDENING FRIEND & REPORTER

Can I use any Marigolds to deter insects? I heard some Marigolds deter & some do not deter insects.
