Marigolds provide stunning colour from summer to autumn and are perfect for containers and hanging baskets. With a rich choice of colours ranging from red, to orange, to yellow, these flowers are also available in both single and double forms. This summer bedding plant needs to be started in a glasshouse or propagator and planted out in late spring after the frosts. We recommend always using a good organic compost when planting up and feed with organic fertiliser, on a monthly basis, throughout the summer. They're a fantastic option for brightening up the front of your home and can be used alongside carrots, beans and other edibles to deter aphids.
