Tall plants suitable for cut flowers Large flowers that can reach up to 10cm across on tall, sturdy stems. Ideal for bedding, mixed borders and cut flowers Sow indoors, a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 0.5cm deep in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20oC is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings 5cm apart to other trays when large enough to handle. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Grow on in cooler but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts). before planting out 25cm apart, when frosts are over. African Marigolds are day-length sensitive and so will not bloom under natural conditions until the longest day has passed.
