I put mine out this past weekend. Hienz Roma, CP, Amelia, TX Cherry and one I brought back from Italy that my uncle Nino say is his Sorrento pomodoro. Also trying reflective mulch for the first time

I once ordered something called "nematoicidal" marigold seeds, but never planted them. Do those work?

Nan, I found this so far. It's a PDF from https://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/PD-35.pdf

Mechanism by which marigold suppresses
nematode pests
While marigolds (Tagetes species) are typically grown
for ornamental purposes as bedding plants, studies have
found that they can be highly toxic to plant-parasitic
nematodes and are capable of suppressing a wide range
(up to 14 genera) of nematode pests. The nematicidal
potential varies with the marigold species and cultivar.

I haven't found a variety called 'Nemacidal' yet. I think it's more referring to a group of certain marigolds.

You're right. I don't think they had a variety name; they were just described as nematicidal. They were small-flowered plants, maybe
Tagetes Minuta?

Mustard Greens are supposed to do basically the same thing. I'm watching a video as I type this about Dwarf French Marigolds. If it turns out good (Without foul language) I'll post the video here.

Default Marigolds and RKN

This video is worth watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaA-loByJg8 It's actually better than the info I've read about Dwarf French Marigolds and RKN. I am more of a hands-on type learner.
