I took some seeds from a friends house the most gorgeous red/copper marigolds to put around my tomatoes for both color and to keep the horned worms out of the garden.
    I'm a seed saver too. I compliment people in their own gardens and they are happy to share with me, have wonderful seeds from post offices and other businesses, always carry empty envelopes when we travel to collect seeds as souvenirs. I have seeds from trips to 16 different states, including Hawaii and Alaska, also Scotland, England, Germany and Sri Lanka. Even have seeds from Midway Atoll. I enjoy the stories of my seed travels as well as the beauty of the plants. Maybe we could start a seed swap?

    Russian Sage would be good but it gets a little tall.

    I SUGGEST YOU START WITH DIFFERENT COLORED MARIGOLDS AS THEY COME UP EACH YEAR BY RESEEDING THEIR SELVES AND IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEY ARE EASY TO PULL UP.

    I think I'm in zone 5 and marigold don't reseed here. But sometimes Impatients will - when they shouldn't.
