Thompson & Morgan Flower Calendula Snow Princess 100 Seed

£2.99

Plant breeders have managed to create a world-first pure white English marigold! Even more interesting is the seeming colour change of the flowers - petals have a yellow underside and show that colour while in bud. As the flowers open the white topside is revealed, surrounding a large brown or yellow central eye. Each luxurious, semi-double flower reaches 7.5cm (3in) across. Scatter the seeds as an easy gap filler or create large swathes by covering whole beds or borders with seed. Enjoy flowers in as little 10 weeks from sowing.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The light peppery taste of the flowers can be added to breads for extra flavour with a touch of colour. Calendula petals can also be used as a substitute for saffron when colouring rice dishes.
