French marigold "Beata" (Tagetes patula) is an extremely valuable ornamental plant that is appreciated for its long blooming period that lasts until first frosts. It creates compact, broadly spreading tufts that grow 15 - 25 cm tall in the blooming time. Single flowers of the "Beata" variety are bicolour, honey-golden with carmine centres. Tiny flowers that develop in large numbers constitute splendid lawn, flower bed and border decoration. They will also please your eye planted in pots or balcony boxes.
French marigold may be grown from seeds. Sow seeds to pots or other containers placed indoors in spring. French marigold is frost-sensitive and therefore can be sown directly to the ground only in the second half of May. Transplant the seedlings to the garden only after the risk of spring frosts has passed. French marigolds are rather undemanding and grow best in fertile soil rich in water. If you provide it with plenty of sunlight they will bloom abundantly for a long time.
