Annual plant 35-50 cm tall with large, full orange flowers. Blooms profusely and evenly from June to frost.
The plant is well suited to a mostly sunny position, and fairly well draining soil. Overly fertile soil may cause the plants to become bushy and produce less flowers. They can be planted out when there's no more risk of frosts.
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 100 seeds in 1g packet.
