Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
Canny gardeners have been growing white fly repelling African and French marigolds alongside their tomatoes for decades. But we know that some marigolds make better white fly deterrents than others, and we've discovered the best there is! We're keeping the variety name under wraps, but we're happy to make it available to serious tomato growers. Try it this season alongside greenhouse and outdoor tomatoes - you'll even see your tomato plants grow better and bear more fruit with our marigolds around them.

Culinary note: French Marigold flowers are edible.

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.

For use as a Nematode and Whitefly repellant plant between the tomatoes in the greenhouse border or outside after hardening off , two or three tagetes for each tomato should prove sufficient.

Sow seeds late winter to mid spring 3mm (1/8in) deep at 21-24.C (70-75F) in a good seed compost. Germination usually takes 5-10 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 8cm (3in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions.

Seems to help the tomatoes 2016-12-23

I've grown Fresh Marigolds with my tomatoes and I really do think it helps them, I'll be buying a pack of these types for the summer. It's not stated in the description but Tagetes patula is also good at combating root leson (Pratylenchus) nematodes.
