Marigold - African Crackerjack
This is an old fashioned, tall, African Marigold ideal for adding height and colour to bedding displays. The strong plants produce big, bold double flowers in vibrant orange, gold and lemon shades.
Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm pots or multi-cell trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks.
