To keep tomato horn worms off my tomatoes, I plant marigolds next to them. I plant tomatoes in groups of four with two to three marigolds in between them. In twenty plus years of gardening, I have only had three horn worms I had to remove.

when I find one, I pick it off and put it on the 'spare' tomato plant... and then I get to watch the moths enjoy my flowers.....

plant a marigold, dill or parsley near your tomato plants in the spring this discourages the moth from laying its eggs i learned this from my elders
