French Cottage Red Marigold - Seeds


Latin name: Tagetes erecta

The French Cottage Red Marigold is a magnificent annual plant with edible flowers which also makes beautiful cut flowers. It is an ideal companion plant in the garden because it repels many unwanted insects. Planted here and there between tomato and vegetable plants, it keeps nematodes away from their roots and fills the air with an intense fragrance each time you pass by. The flowering period stretches late in the fall, until the arrival of severe frosts.

On a semé les graines à la mi-mars et le feuillage a poussé tellement rapidement! Super facile à partir en semis! J'ai hâte de les voir cet été dans mon jardin.
