Carnations are a nice plant to decrease nematodes on soil. I grow them as a companion plant to carrots and sweet potatoes, as these two are prone to be damaged by nematodes.
Researchers say three species are particularly good at that:  Tagetes patula, Tagetes minuta andTagetes erecta.

Year after year i grow carnations and enjoy beautiful flowers. Growing this lovely plant is so easy. All it requires well drained soil, direct sunlight and enough moisture for successful growth!
