Golden Marigold (Tagetes tenuifolia Lulu) 100 seeds (#2184)
About the product
Annual plant 20-25 cm high with lemon-colored flowers. Compact up to 25 cm tall, spherical plant habit.
Blooms profusely and evenly from June to frost. 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.
It succeeds in any garden soil.
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.
