A bright and bonny ‘pot’ marigold with plentiful semi-double flowers in burnished orange, ready for adding edible garnishes and colour to salads and soups. Mostly commonly grown as a bee-buzzing summer annual, ‘Fiesta Orange' can keep the summer party going under glass or on a sunny windowsill where it makes an attractive houseplant until the end of the year.

  • Garden care:
    Keep well watered and feed with a high potash fertiliser (such as Tomorite) at regular intervals throughout the growing season. Regular deadheading of the flowers will ensure even more appear until the first frosts.
