Marigold 'Fireball is an exciting breakthrough in French marigold breeding with flowers that change colour from red to orange and then gold as they mature, creating a stunning multicoloured effect. These compact, bushy plants are superb for pots or edging a sunny border. You can also plant them in your vegetable garden, where they’ll attract pollinators and deter pests such as greenfly.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your 12 garden ready plug plants in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground: Plant once all risk of frost is past, in a sunny spot in fertile, moist but well-drained soil.

Planting in containers: Plant in a container filled with multi-purpose compost. Place the container where it will get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight and water well to settle the plants in.

Feeding and aftercare:. Water regularly during dry periods, and feed container-grown plants fortnightly with a high potash liquid feed like tomato fertiliser. Deadhead regularly to keep the flowers coming.
