Decorative annual plant, 65-100 cm high, with large orange flowers with slightly twisted petals. It blooms from early summer until the first frost.
Good for flower beds, borders, containers and pots.
For best growth, marigolds require full sun and well drained, average soil. Regular deadheading will help plants look and flower their best. French marigolds are great for mixed plantings and containers. As an added benefit, research suggests that marigold roots emit a substance that deters root nematodes, so they make fine companion plants for nematode-susceptible vegetables.
Approximately 60 seeds in 0.5g packet.
