Carrot Fly

Kerr Brand asked 11 years ago

Can’t think of where I heard or read it but are French Marigolds good for keeping carrot fly at bay?

The theory is that since the carrot fly finds the carrot plants by smell, the pungent scent of French marigolds might cause confusion. Some people claim it works but trials have proved unsatisfactory.
