Alumia Vanilla Cream Marigold
Tagetes patula. Beautiful soft yellow... a first in marigolds. Alumina Vanilla Cream's butter-yellow flowers are held above a 12-14" plant with excellent garden performance. The French marigold is a compact, bushier plant and provides colourful edging to flower beds and walkways. Seed count approximately 350/gram. Approx. 50 seeds/pkg.
Very easy to grow. Start inside 6-8 weeks before last frost. Start African types earlier than French types. Cover seed with 1⁄4 inches of soil and provide an average soil warmth (75 degrees F). May also be direct seeded 2 weeks before last frost. Transplant after last frost into a sunny location.
Will grow well in poor soil. Space African types 12-18 inches apart, and French types 6-8 inches apart. Deadhead regularly.
