Looking for vibrant colour and natural pest control in your garden? Look no further than Marigold (French) Red Knight!

Growing Red Knight Marigolds:

Get Started (February-April):

  1. Indoors: Sow seeds shallowly in pots filled with moist compost. Keep warm (15-20°C) and well-lit.
  2. Transplant: When seedlings have a few leaves, transplant them to larger pots for further growth.

Alternatively (April-May):

  1. Direct sow: Sow seeds directly outdoors where they’ll flower, spacing them 15cm apart. Cover lightly with soil and keep moist.

Planting Out (Late May):

  1. Once frost risk has passed, harden off your seedlings by gradually introducing them to outdoor conditions.
  2. Plant outdoors in a sunny spot, spacing plants 20cm apart for good airflow.

Care & Benefits:

  • Sun & Water: Choose a sunny spot and water regularly, especially during dry spells.
  • Deadheading: Regularly remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms and a neat appearance.
  • Pest Control: Marigolds release compounds that can help deter some harmful insects in the vegetable garden, making them excellent companion plants.
