In English they are affectionately called marigold—stirring images of Mother Mary and gold. But here, Tagetes are somewhat neglected—wrongly so! The different colours in our mix of golden yellow through brownish red to orange bring shimmer and shine to the garden. Height reaches up to 30 cm. Flowers bloom from June to October.
Sow in April to small pots and from mid-May into the open field. Frost-free cultivation is necessary. Attention: Snails can cause damage. Tagetes may not only be used as a garden bed plant, but also strategically planted between vegetables for when soil is depleted.
