Fin­ish with the marigolds

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

Who didn’t grow marigolds as a child? If you were put off by stumpy ver­sions try more stat­uesque cul­ti­vars such as ‘Lin­naeus’ or ‘Cinnabar’. Sow these half-hardy an­nu­als un­der cover from March to May and plant out af­ter all risk of frost. Use some form of slug de­ter­rent or young plants will be chomped back to stumps overnight. Keep dead­head­ing and plants will flower un­til the frosts.
