Description Sowing More Info Delivery

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).

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 best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.

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. Keep at a temperature of between 21-25C (70-75F). 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.
