African Marigold (Tagetes Erecta nana) 50 seeds (#1081)

Marigolds are regarded as one of the easiest plants to grow. They are very hardy, and may survive minor frosts.
This an annual dwarf plant grows up to 35 cm m tall. Leaves are less than 3 cm long, deeply divided into many small parts.
It is an excellent addition to the landscape as bedding or edging plants at the front of the border or in containers on the deck, patio. Good for herb and kitchen garden as well as the flowers are edible. Mix the petals in salads or teas and enjoy!
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 50 seeds in 0.5g packet.
