PRODUCT INFORMATION

French Marigold Seeds - Court Jester

Tagetes patula

It's easy to see where this fun little bloom gets its name! Reminiscent of the striped costumes of the sprightliest member of the court, our Court Jester French Marigolds feature a bold red/brown and yellow pattern.

If you need a pop of colour in the garden that endures Spring, Summer and Autumn, then you really can’t go past a French Marigold. With a long list of benefits for the garden and in the home, as well as being a gorgeous cut flower, you won’t mind that these scented beauties will re-seed every year.

Bees and Butterflies love them!

The French Marigold is certainly one of the most planted annual flowers in the whole wide world. They have a fabulous reputation as a stand out companion plant for vegetables, such as tomatoes, and are used by cottage gardeners to attract important and much loved pollinators like bees and butterflies.

They propagate ever so quickly.

It’s best to plant them in early-late Spring, about 1cm deep with a quarter of a teaspoon of fertiliser sprinkled around the top. It’s important to keep the soil moist for the first 10-20 days.  The seeds will take 1-2 weeks to germinate.  Best of all, they are very simple and easy for gardening beginners, who will be growing their first flowers seeds in no time at all

Saving seeds...sprinkles...

As you can see below, you must deadhead your French Marigolds regularly for a number of reasons, which include:

encouraging regular blooming

avoiding the plant wilting and going to seed

keeping flower heads for seed -saving.

It’s really easy to snap off the flower heads and drop them all over the ground so they will self-seed later. I usually do this during the balmy summer nights on my nightly evening garden walk (best done with a glass of local wine in one hand, leaving the other free to sprinkle seeds).  You can also pop the flower heads straight into a brown paper bag to dry inside and then you can satisfyingly crack open the dry seed heads in early spring to sprinkle into seed trays. Keep them moist and warm and they will surely spring to life in no time at all.

Ensure that you prick our their first three flowers, so that the plant bushes out to each side, then there will be more blooms for the life of it’s growing season if you do this at the beginning.

It’s also a green manure.

All types of Marigolds are extremely popular with Permaculture and market gardeners, many gardeners plant them to stop nematodes, cabbage worms, whitefly, aphids and many other vegetable and foliage damaging insects.
