Organic French Brocade Marigold
80-90 days to harvest | Tagetes patula
Perfect for companion planting, French Brocade is barely one foot tall, brilliantly bursting with dozens of gorgeous blooms. Tucked between cabbages, at the ends of beds and along fences for a bright border, French Brocade also thrives in containers! You’ll find compact marigolds throughout our fields attracting butterflies and other beneficial insects among all our vegetables and herbs while her roots exude compounds detracting pesky nematodes.
Easy to grow with charming ebullience, marigolds attract butterflies and countless beneficial pollinators above the ground while deterring pest nematodes below the ground. If you’re interested in companion planting or interplanting, grow Fruition’s organic French Brocade or Queen Sophia seeds: she’s a scant foot tall and wide! If you’re looking for a hedgerow with oceans of blooms, sow Pinwheel.
At Fruition, we sow marigold seeds in soil blocks 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost.
