    Noted for producing large, long-lasting flowers early in the season these compact French marigolds will add a brilliant splash of colour to the front of a summer bedding scheme - and they also do very well in pots and containers. Prefering a really sunny spot, they are more tolerant of drought than most of the other bedding plants, so are a good option if you are likely to forget to water them every day.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7 cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They can be grown on or planted straight out into the garden.
