Amelia Painter has been a staff writer for the national travel magazine "Bed & Breakfast America" and is the author of "Organic Container Gardening for All," "Opening and Operating a Bed & Breakfast in the 21st Century," "Discover Iowa: Cooking With Iowa Wines, Meats and Other Iowa Products," "Phantom: Queen of the Road," and "Surviving College" -- now out-of-print. Painter has many interests and often writes short pieces on non-fiction topics for newspapers and magazines.


Marigold flowers have been used as a pest repellent for centuries and gardeners living in mild climates plant them in the early fall as well as again in spring.


When planted in fall, seedlings or young plants may very well be killed by a hard frost (temperatures drop below 28° Fahrenheit for a few hours), but if protected they can survive an occasional frost.
