French Marigold – Orange (Organic)

£2.34£3.90

Golden orange with red flowers that have a feathery fragrant foliage. Tagetes is a very rewarding plant. It is easy to grow and produces an abundance of stunning yellow to red coloured flowers. It also makes a great companion plant as the scent is disliked by flies and other insects and the roots produce secretions that have insecticidal and nematicidal (against harmful nematodes) effects. It can also be planted in pots or containers and will embellish gardens, doorsteps and balconies.

French Marigold tips: Sow indoors with heat (21°C) from Feb, under cover from March, and outdoors from May.
In modules cover the seeds with a very fine layer of compost which must be kept moist – a mister works well for this.
If sowing outdoors sow 0.5cm deep in drills 30cm apart, and thin to final spacing.
