Plant details

Tagetes patula, or French marigolds, are hardy, easy-to-grow annuals native to Mexico. They're grown mainly as a bedding plant at the edge of herbaceous borders but are often grown alongside tomatoes as a companion plant, to ward off white fly. Tagetes 'Starfire Mixed' is a dwarf variety with pinnate green foliage and single, rich golden yellow to red flowers over a long period.It's ideal for using as bedding to fill gaps at the front of a sunny border, or ni containers.

For best results grow Tagetes 'Starfire Mixed' in free-draining soil in full sun and feed weekly with a high-potash fertiliser. Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering.
