French Marigold – Flamenco
This variety features yellow centre and red-tipped petals on large double-crested flowers. It will look great in patio containers and gardens alike.
Sow from January to April under glass in pots at around 22C. Sowing in April can be made direct into open ground. As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out into trays or pots spacing 5cm (2") apart. Gradually harden off and plant out from mid-May onwards 30cm (12") apart. Dead-heading will prolong life and increase flowering ability.
