A lovely marigold blend with semi-double flowers in yellow and orange colors. Marigolds are so easy to grow that even the little ones can join in. The plant is 50-60 cm tall and suitable for cutting. Marigolds are not only valued for being decorative flowers - its petals are edible and can be used for food dishes and decorations. One can dry the flowers and use them for oil extraction for cosmetics.
It scares away garden pests, such as ants, larvae and ticks. That’s why I always have a few planted in my greenhouse.
