Flowering Marigolds

From Late Spring TO Early Autumn

These flowers will bloom in late spring and may carry on into early autumn. Your garden will transform when the brightly coloured flowers bloom.

 

Planting from Seedlings

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

You may decide to grow the seeds inside 6 weeks prior to planting them. Once the plant has sprouted to about 2 inches tall then you may transfer them outside. These flowers need lots of sunshine so pick a sunny spot.
