Very beautiful plant for the border or window-box!

The French Marigold 'Solar Red' F1 hybrid (Tagetes triploide) is the darkest French Marigold that exists. A triploid marigold does not form any seeds, so it will continue to flower until winter! 'Solar Red’ looks fabulous in borders, window-boxes and planters.

Planting+
Marigold seed requires no prior treatment.
Care+
Water extra in periods of drought and keep the bed free of weed and your marigolds will thrive. Marigolds are very undemanding but beware of their roots being too wet. They will even do well in poor soil.
The flowers will show from June through to the first frosts. Remove dead flowers to encourage reflowering and feed the plants monthly for more profuse flowering. If the winter is mild they will likely spread and it's nice to wait and see what colour the flowers will be.
Tip: Marigolds are often used to keep nematodes at bay in the kitchen garden. Alternate rows of carrot and marigold can work wonders.
Specifics+
Marigolds are annuals that grow 15-30 cm tall. There are some that will actually grow to 1 m tall but these low growers are used a lot in beds and borders to bring so much colour with their lovely tinted petals!
Tagetes is classified as Asteraceae. The flowers have ray florets or disc florets.
This plant originated in the countries of Central America.
Tagetes hybrids that we know as bedding plants came from various crossed pollinations and hybridising. These hybrids vary enormously in the size of both plant and flower. Some grow no higher than 15 cm but there are some hybrids that grow to one metre tall!
