The Low-Maintenance Flower That Keeps Wasps Away Naturally

You can plant marigolds anywhere in your yard or garden that’s overrun with wasps. Although you can strategically plant these brightly colored flowers to keep wasps away from your crops, you can also place them around your yard, enhancing your outdoor space. If you’d like to prevent wasps from bothering you when you’re enjoying some time on your deck or patio, place some potted marigolds in this location as well. 

The best thing about marigolds is the wide array of colors they come in. You can find them in shades of orange, red, yellow, gold, or white, making them the perfect addition to any color scheme. But what is the best time of year to plant marigolds for ultimate wasp protection? The spring is ideal. You want moist soil, but the time of year largely depends on the type of marigold you plant. Some do best when they’re planted in the spring to midsummer, so always consult your local garden center before planting.
