Herb of the sun aka Marigold!

This popular annual is handy when planted next to the vegetable garden by driving nematodes (roundworms) away.  Marigolds are useful in the same way when also planted next to flowers, such as dahlias, chrysanthemums and plants in the daisy family.   The brightly coloured petals of signet marigolds can add tanginess to a salad & other summer dishes too.
