Pot marigolds

I’m pleased to see that the pot marigolds Flighty’s Favourites patch, which I only cleared and re-seeded three weeks ago, is doing well with lots of seedlings now growing.  Among the flowering ones elsewhere on the plot these two-tone ones are of note, especially the light centred one as most pot marigolds have dark centres.


I don’t know the variety for most of the ones I grow as I originally started out with some seeds I was given, which I mixed with a packet of Art Shades Mixed. Since then I’ve  let them self-seed and collected seed to sow in the spring.  I’ve occasionally bought a packet of a variety that has caught my eye, such as Playtime Mix and Canteloupe, to add to them.  One variety that can be identified is Snow Princess which has very pale yellow, almost white, flowers.  This one is perhaps the whitest of these I’ve grown.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

  1. The one on the top left is amazing, they’re such a good value flower for the plot as well, going on so long. I put some French marigolds under the tomatoes but they were eaten down to stumps by snails. CJ xx


  2. They are BEAUTIFUL. Very excited that the first one in your photos has today come out here, thank you so much Andy xx


  3. You could call them Flighty’s Mix! Calendula are such cheery flowers, lovely to see yours which are so different. I have the usual orange on the allotment which self seeded from last year. Happy weekend, Karen x


    1. Karen I’ve always called them Flight’y’s Favourites. They sure are, and I think I’ve got at least a dozen distinct variations. Good for you. Thanks, and for you too. xx
