Description
  • Three different flower shades on one plant
  • Reliable bedding plant with ever-changing colour
  • Compact, mounded plants
'Fireball' is a brand new type of marigold that hasn't been seen before in French or African varieties. The buds burst open to first reveal a cluster of deep-red petals; these then take on shades of fiery bronze, and finally turn a lovely rusty orange, giving the look of three different coloured blooms on the same plant. A reliable, well-known bedding plant with a completely new look, Marigold 'Fireball' will look fabulous in pots and patio containers. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 25cm (10").

How to Grow
Pot up marigold plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise marigolds to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days and transplant them into their final positions in containers and borders. Plant marigolds in well drained soil in full sun. When growing marigolds pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.
More Info
Feed and water marigold plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of marigold flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer. Culinary note: Marigold flowers have a mild citrus flavour. Use them in sandwiches, salads, fish dishes and hot desserts.
