A superb four-colour marigold cross, Sunburst Mixed combines the flower power, garden performance and great weather resistance of a French marigold with fabulous flowers that are almost as large as those of an African marigold. Spectacular planted in large drifts as part of a bedding display as well as in large containers.
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.
1 Packet (40 Marigold Seeds) (TM08462)
Sow March to April. Sow seed 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 21-25ºC (70-75ºF). 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.
