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 'Zenith Mixed'
Tagetes patula x erecta, Afro-French Marigold
The best ever bedding Marigold! Zenith is an Afro-French Hybrid, resulting in plants producing more flowers than almost as large as an African Marigold. Very bushy and vigorous plants producing masses of large crested or carnation-like flowers, in a wide range of yellows, reds, oranges and bicolour shades. Outstanding weather resistance. Ideal for planting en-masse creating the 'wow' factor in borders or containers. Height: 30-35cm (12-14in).
