They are easier on the eye, and often have a touch of red edging to the petals.
I’ve been busy dead-heading all mine as I don’t want them to self-seed everywhere, although they will bloom again. I’ve rather too many this year so I’m planning on mainly growing them just in a couple of areas next year.
The first of these Flighty’s favourites started flowering over three months ago and should continue through to the first frost, long after most of the other annuals have finished.
Here are the links to the previous posts on these Pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites – 2013/1, Pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites – 2013/2 and Pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites 2013/3 | Flighty’s plot.
Have a good weekend!
