Very good

By: on 22 March 2016
These were very easy to grow and the different shades of yellow/orange in the flowers make the garden look lovely. I planted some near my tomatoes and they do seem to keep the bugs away. I have had a bit of a problem with mold on a few of them but I think it was because they were a little crowded and I basically don't know what I am doing! I will be planting again next spring and learn from my mistakes.
