Marigold 'Sunburst Mixed' F1 Hybrid

Tagetes patula x erecta, Afro-French Marigold

Half-hardy Annual

A superb four-colour marigold cross, Sunburst Mixed combines the flower power, garden performance and great weather resistance of a French marigold with fabulous flowers that are almost as large as those of an African marigold. Spectacular planted in large drifts as part of a bedding display as well as in large containers.


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.

Sow March to April. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 21-25ºC (70-75ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.
