About the product

Popular dwarf annual plant for bedding and in groups. Early and long flowering in bowls and containers on balconies, graves and borders. Also used as edging for vegetable beds.
For best growth, marigolds require full sun and well drained, rich 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.
