Vibrant orange blooms with crested centres, on dwarf plants fantastic for bedding en masse or between your nightshades. Planting below tomato plants can help to keep water from splashing up onto tomato leaves. Buddy up with basil for a top combination through summer. Be sure to leave some flowers at the end to go to seed, for some free cheery volunteers in your garden. Lovely. There are about 50 seeds in your packet – they look like miniature incense sticks.
Variety: Tagetes patula ‘Petit Orange’
Planting: Plant direct into the soil, in sunny garden beds between especially your brassicas and nightshades.
