Product Information

Enjoy months of bright sunny colour with this outstanding mix of Marigold ĎAfrican Suní. Large, pom-pom-like blooms erupt from June and remain consistent and impressive even up to the first frosts of autumn.

Dark green, healthy foliage acts as a perfect backdrop for the busy flowerheads of gold, yellow, and orange petals to emerge.

Whatís more, the aromatic and bushy plant of this Marigold mix will draw the attention of pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, to leave your garden teeming with wildlife when in bloom.

Easy to grow, ĎAfrican Suní will thrive in beds and borders exposed to full sun or partial shade, while also being a superb candidate for filling your favourite patio pots and containers.

Supplied as a pack of 24 plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out.

Top Tips

Deadhead when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.

Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Plant straight into containers and grow on for a week or two before placing out.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry.
  • They donít like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Regular maintenance and watering are essential to grow fabulous containers that last the whole season.
  • Check and water containers every day in summer, (unless the compost is wet).
  • Aim to keep the compost moist but not soggy and avoid wetting the foliage and flowers.
  • From March to June, apply a general-purpose liquid fertiliser once a week.
  • Deadhead and trim your plants regularly to maintain shape and encourage new flowers.
  • Do not allow plants to set seed.
