PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Tagetes patula 'Disco Red'
French Marigold 'Disco Red'
Type/Hardiness Annual, Half hardy
Flowering period Summer-early autumn
Height 18-24in/45-60mm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Any, fertile, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Spring, Shallow
For those who are not lovers of French marigold, this one is much classier and may make you think again! The single blooms are deep orange to burgundy - sometimes almost brown, with a striking yellow edge.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in March or April in good quality compost, covering with a thin layer of compost. Maintain a temperature of about 70F/21C, keeping moist but not too wet. Germination usually takes 7-14 days. Prick out seedlings when they are large enough to handle, into modules or small pots. Harden off and plant out when there is no risk of frost. Can also be sown direct .25in/6mm deep in late spring.
