CONTINUED Page 22 Mates, companions, pals or friends. Whatever you call it -- marigolds, tomatoes, and lettuces like to hang in the same circles. They also have certain advantages, or benefits, to offer each other. But like any good group of friends, there is usually one who tends to go the extra mile to help the others out. In the world of plants -- marigolds are that friend. You cannot go wrong with adding marigolds to any vege garden. Growing friends with benefits next to each other is known as companion planting, and marigolds are one of the most well-known companions around. Potatoes are a fan of marigolds because of the pesticidal chemical in their roots, which kills nematodes (microscopic parasites living in the soil). This is also one of the reasons tomatoes like to hang with marigolds. That, and that marigolds also help keep away whitefly -- a pest with a particular fondness for tomatoes. If orange is not your thing -- marigolds also come in cream, lemon and apricot colours. Tired of eating iceberg lettuce? Why not try cos, buttercrunch, or French mesclun lettuce? Keen for a variety? Then grab a mixed bunch and sample several different types of lettuce. Lettuces, tomatoes and marigolds all like to spend time at the same hangouts -- anywhere that is sunny and sheltered from the wind. So as long as the place you plan to plant them is sunny, you can grow these three pals wherever you like. Stop slugs in their slime Simply cut the top off an empty fizzy drink bottle, leaving about 10cm of plastic from the lid. Make sure the lid is tightly screwed on. Make a hole next to your veges large enough for the whole bottle neck to fit into. The open end of your plastic bottle should sit almost parallel with the soil. Place three sticks about 15cm in height around your plastic bottle in the shape of a teepee. Fill your bottle up to the halfway mark with beer (slugs are not fussy about the type of beer, but kids, make sure you ask your parents first!). To ensure the beer is protected from rain, take the discarded end of your plastic fizzy drink bottle and cut off a section about 5cm from the end. Balance this section on the three sticks you staked earlier. This will create a lid to protect the beer against rain. Now all you have to do is sit back and wait. Overnight the slugs will slide their way into the beer. And do not just stop with one beer bait bottle, make several and place them around your slug-susceptible veges. You will be amazed by the results.
