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 'Durango Tangerine' F1 Hybrid
Tagetes patula, French Marigold
Marigold 'French Vanilla' F1 Hybrid
Tagetes erecta, African Marigold
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). More info
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).
