French Marigold (Tagetes Patula nana Cupido) 60 seeds (#987)

Popular annual plant for bedding and in groups. It is long flowering in bowls and containers on balconies, graves and borders. Also used as edging for vegetable beds.
Large flowering, dwarf variety with chrysanthemum-like flowers.
For best growth, marigolds require full sun and well drained, rich soil. Regular deadheading will help plants look and flower their best. 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.
