Marigolds & aphids

Marigolds & aphids

So, I discovered a lot of aphids - they seemed to be confined to one section of my garden (I garden in containers). I went out ton of marigolds, and I"ve put a lot in the infested section. I'm wondering if anyone here has an idea of how long it should be before I see the aphid population reduced, and if anyone has made any observation of the radius of aphid deterence for one marigold plant (say a 6" plant) thanks - & hope everbody is having a happy gardening season HT
