Another breeding breakthrough with muti-coloured blooms on the one plant. Within the mixture will be pillarbox red flowers never seen before each carried on sturdy stems and simply revelling in the sun and as the plant ages the colours change to fiery bronze and then onto an attractive rusty orange. These French Marigolds are this year’s ‘must have’ bedding plant. Highly tolerant of the weather and giving a long display in containers, beds and borders.
How to Grow Marigolds from Seed
Sow Marigold seeds from February to March in trays or pots filled with damp potting mix. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of vermiculite and cover the pot or tray with plastic to maintain moisture levels. Place the tray in a warm spot. 65-70F is ideal, and germination should occur within 7 to 10 days.
Once the marigold seedlings appear, remove the plastic cover and position the tray to a location where the seedlings will get at least 5 hours of light daily. Keep the potting mix damp by watering from below. This will help to prevent damping off.
