Dyer's-marigold (annual) tagetes

The plant grows up to 60cm tall. Large, bright yellow-orange flowers. Avoided by slugs, thus easy to cultivate. The flower petals can be dried, pulverized and usage as a natural food colouring for pastries.

Sow in trays from April, bed out to the open land from the middle of May. Frost-free culture necessary. Attention: Slug damage! Tagetes are not only used as border plants but are also beneficial to plant between vegetables when soil fatigue occurs.
