When to sow
When to Sow Vanilla Cream French Marigold Seeds
February to April
Where to Sow
On the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover witha fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or in a warm place and keep at a temperature between 21-25°C (70-75°F). Do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 7-21 days.
What to do Next
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12") apart in well drained soil in full sun.
The scent of Marigolds is thought to deter white fly, and plants are often placed with tomatoes where this is a problem.
