Popular bedding plants, marigolds are best known as either 'French' or 'African' types. These hardy annuals are easy to grow and the plants stand up to all weathers, rain or shine and are smothered in beautiful flowers. Some marigolds repel white fly on tomatoes in greenhouses or outdoors too - grow them next to your tomato plants for maximum effect.
Marigold 'Discovery Yellow' F1 Hybrid
Tagetes erecta, African Marigold
Spectacular 6-7cm (2½-3in) bright yellow, double blooms on dwarf sturdy plants makes it a considerable improvement on its nearest rival. It is quite as dwarf as many French marigolds and very neat and tidy whilst retaining its huge and fully double blooms, extraordinary reliability and almost legendary heat and poor weather tolerance. Flowers mid to late summer. Height 20-25cm (8-10in).More info
