Marigold African Marvel Gold
A truly marvellous marigold bearing huge, fully double, weather tolerant blooms up to 10cm (4") across! Tried and tested over a number of years, its even height makes it a great choice for bedding.
Marigold roots emit a substance that deters root nematodes, so these make fine companion plants for nematode-susceptible vegetables.
Marigolds will also attract beneficial insects that will snack on the insects that are feasting on your plants. Beans, carrots, cabbages and tomatoes are just a few plants that benefit from having marigolds as a companion plant.
Select a location in full sun with good rich, moist, well drained organic soil. Heat tolerant but protect plant from excessive heat

While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.
Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
