* Marigolds are very useful in the garden: the secretions of their roots reduce the damage to other plants by fungal diseases, especially Fusarium, and protect against certain types of nematodes. In addition, dried marigold leaves and flowers are used to make seasonings for salads, soups and sauces. That is why marigolds are amazingly suitable for the "pharmaceutical garden".
