Marigold 'Single Legion of Honour'

Tagetes patula, French Marigold

Half-hardy Annual

More than 150 years old and still going strong, the heirloom variety of French Marigold Single Legion of Honour continues to perform well in the garden. These bushy, mid-height French marigolds will quickly become smothered in a mass of single, golden-yellow flowers with pretty dark brown markings. French Marigold Single Legion of Honour is a reliable and robust border filler, flowering all summer long with a minimum of dead-heading.

Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sow seeds from March to April on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 21-25C (70-75F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

For best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.
