More than 150 years old and still going strong, the heirloom variety of French Marigold Single Legion of Honour continues to perform well in the garden. These bushy, mid-height French marigolds will quickly become smothered in a mass of single, golden-yellow flowers with pretty dark brown markings. French Marigold Single Legion of Honour is a reliable and robust border filler, flowering all summer long with a minimum of dead-heading.

Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too. For more details about edible flowers click here.


1 packet (100 marigold seeds) (26451)

Sow seeds from March to April on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 21-25C (70-75F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

For best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.
