Fantastic Mixed is a strongly growing variety of African Marigold (Tagetes) that will definitely add a certain pizzazz to your bedding displays with its sunshine yellow and bright orange blooms. The petals are very thin and curled giving the flower its characteristic 'fluffy' look.
This variety is very vigorous with neat compact foliage making it a classic plant for bedding schemes where you want a bold, eye catching block of sunshine yellows and orange.
Fantastic Mixed is a half hardy annual growing to a height of 40-50cm with a spread of 20-30cm, it very easy to grow and will provide you with a sizzling display of colour from early June to late September. These flowers are long lasting and with their strong stems they make excellent specimens for the vase.
Sow Fantastic Mixed on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approx 15-21°C from early February to late May on the surface of a good seed compost, firm down and keep compost damp but not too wet, transplant seedlings, spacing them out to 50mm apart, when established plant out in the ground at a distance of 25-30cm apart after all danger of frost has passed. Alternatively sow thinly in a prepared area that is free from weeds, cover with 6.5mm of sieved soil.
