Marigold - Queen Series Mixed (French)
A lovely range of Camellia-flowered marigolds that originated in France with broader more elegantly shaped blooms than ordinary types. A superb plant for bedding or outdoor containers. Flowers all summer to first frosts. Height: 23-30cm (10-12in).
Sow late winter or early spring in a good seed compost at a temperature of 20-25C (70-75F). Sow 6mm (¼in) deep. Germination takes 5-14 days.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle and gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out when risk of frost has passed into a sunny position in ordinary well drained soil.
