Pot up marigold plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise marigolds to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days and transplant them into their final positions in containers and borders. Plant marigolds in well drained soil in full sun. When growing marigolds pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.
Feed and water marigold plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of marigold flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

  1. A real gem of a Marigold

    By Sue Clapton 22-05-2016

    Zenith is an exceptional marigold. It is really quick to flower and the colours are vibrant ranging from red through to lemon. The plants are reliable and branch quickly without becoming 'leggy'. I've grown this variety for a few years and it never fails whether it's wet or dry. I originally did grow Zenith from seed and found the germination poor, so now I buy it in plug plants - so much easier.
