Mixtures of deep yellows, oranges and lemons will make a delightful splash of colour in the summer border for edging or used in pots, containers and balcony flowers. Tagetes are miniature members of the marigold family and can be used in the vegetable garden or greenhouse alongside tomatoes, as companion planting to help keep pests at bay. 
Flowering will continue throughout the summer months into autumn if some deadheading is done.
Marigolds attract hoverflies and other beneficial insects.

Size guide - Tray of 40 Plug Plants 

The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.6cm deep x 1.8cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or 6 cell trays. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks.  Water once the compost starts to dry out.

If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food  to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.

Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.

Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.

***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Arrived damaged

Sadly, these arrived badly damaged. The packaging was fine but the Royal Mail must had put them on a rollercoaster ride. I got a full refund which was great but I really wanted the plants and out of 40 I managed to get 4.

Tagetes Gem
Wednesday, 19 August 2020  | 

I found Brookside when looking on line for tagetes gem during lockdown. I have never been succesful in growing them from seed (irratic germination); my usual garden centre has previously ordered tagetes plants for me for many a year. I love the smell of the leaves, their delicate orangy yellow flowers, that they last until the colder nights of autumn and most importantly that the bees & hover flies absolutely love them which gives me hours of watching & enjoyment. On arrival these were the tiniest plug plants I have ever seen! I was not hopeful. However they were well wrapped and healthy. Obviously been well cared for. I planted them on. What a display they are giving; very pleased. I will be back in 2021 for more. Thank you Brookside.

Very good plug plants
Tuesday, 26 May 2020  | 

I think this review is a month early. Plug plants arrived as described, were timely and well protected.
2 weeks on they are progressing well and we will be planting out this week with hot weather forecast. I can’t give five stars because I haven’t seen if they fulfil their ultimate description but I would certainly buy again based on my experience. 4 star
