Marigold 'French Vanilla' F1 Hybrid

Tagetes erecta, African Marigold

Half-hardy Annual

 Customer Rating
A triumph in plant breeding! A real creamy white flowered Marigold and at last something different in the colour spectrum from oranges and lemons. Flowers are pure in colour, 7.5cm (3in) across and prolific too. There is also a master stroke - 'French Vanilla' has less of the pungent Marigold smell. A definite improvement! Use them in formal or informal bedding, where they will contrast superbly with other bright or pastel flowers. A refreshing plant for the patio container too. Height: 30-38cm (12-15in).

patio

Sow from mid spring to early summer in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Germination takes 5-14 days at 21-24C (70-75F).

When large enough to handle transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on in cooler conditions. When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in late spring after all risk of frost has passed 30cm (12in) apart in full sun and well drained soil.

Reviews
  1. Highly recommended

    By Margaret Mowatt 15-08-2012

    Having grown these unusual creamy white marigolds for several years I thoroughly recommend trying them. They are easy to grow and with regular dead-heading will flower from late Spring right through to late Autumn (just beware of slugs ). I receive many admiring comments for their large creamy white blooms. They add a lovely cool touch to borders and look good grown with cinereria 'Silver Dust'

  2. Worth buying two packets

    By Peter Humphrey 25-07-2011

    100% germination,easy to care for,just remember to dead head and you will have a bed of pale cream/white flowers set against the dark green foliage a real eye catcher.Made a change from my usual yellow/orange border.these will be on my seed list for next year.A touch more expensive but worth the money.
