Annual Plants


Annual plants fall under two categories - hardy and half-hardy. Hardy annuals can be grown outdoors and will tolerate cooler tempratures, whereas the more tender half-hardy annuals need protection and must not be planted out until all risk of frost has passed. These delightful summer flowers add colour and interest to beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Marigold 'French Vanilla' F1 Hybrid

Tagetes erecta, African Marigold

 Customer Rating
  • Customer favourite
  • Very reliable summer annual

At last something different to the usual colour spectrum of orange and lemon - a real creamy white flowered African marigold! Marigold 'French Vanilla' is a triumph in plant breeding, producing masses of large blooms up to 7.5cm (3") across that are absolutely pure in colour. Better still, it has less of the pungent marigold smell than its cousins. A definite improvement! Perfect for bringing a contemporary twist to beds, borders and containers. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
