  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to the first frosts
  • Hardiness: tender (needs frost protection)

    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. Preferring 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 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

    Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually. Please also be aware that the pot in the photograph is not included.

    Garden care: Pot up and grow on under glass until all risk of frost has passed and they can be planted outside. They require little care, although regular deadheading will prolong the already substantial flowering period.

We loved these, they were strong and beautiful and flowered for a very long time. We put them all in hanging baskets to keep the slugs and snails off them.

If you do nothing else...water new plants. Make sure new additions do not suffer during dry spells. Plant up summer containers bedding once the threat of frosts has passed. Feed container plants about six weeks after planting. If it’s a nice day...trim he

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.

Posh bedding

There is still plenty of time to raise hardier annuals from seeds sown now and these include cosmos, zinnias and marigolds. However it's often easier to opt for ready-grown plugs of these, as well as the more-tender begonias petunias, antirrhinums and ni
