Marigold 'Striped Marvel'

Tagetes patula, French Marigold

Half-hardy Annual

Raised by a Scottish T&M customer. We are delighted to introduce such a refreshing break in colour. Each petal is evenly divided by a red and yellow stripe and this produces a thoroughly eye-catching effect. The bushy, uniform plants produce masses of flowers, excellent for bedding and particularly good for cutting, lasting well in water. Occasional all yellow bloom produced through climate stress. Height: 60-75cm (24-30in).

Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too. For more details about edible flowers click here.

patio, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden

Sow in spring at 21-24C (70-75F) in a good seed compost. Just cover the seed with compost and keep the soil damp but not wet. Germination usually takes 5-14 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot.

Approx. 10-15 days after planting out, pinch out the growing point at the top of the plant to make them bush out.
