I know they're the easiest plants in the world to grow but as a beginner gardener I'm really chuffed with the 99p pkt of marigold seeds I bought in February.
They're still going strong well into autumn - I'm waiting for them to finish before I plant my winter pansies in their place but don't think it'll be a while yet!

Photo taken this afternoon. Smile

I love marigolds, especially this time of year, they're very cheery and bright.
If I plant them in my garden the slugs have always devoured them by the next morning.

The only time they thrived and looked rather good was when I tried growing the tall ones in a hanging basket. After about 6 inches growth they dipped down and grew like a trailer. Which was novel.

All looks really nice there Caroljoyce, wonderful too how they last for such a long time in flower. 
I have had the same happen as you Sags, shame isn't it.

Fine specimens Meerkat. Well done. I didn't know what they were to start with but Mrs mart says they are Butternut Squash? What else do you like to grow? A friend of ours is keen on her allotment and has given us all sorts of goodies this year. Courgettes mainly but raspberries, plums and runner beans too.

Do you find that you have to give a lot of it away because you can't manage to eat it all? We kind of rely on that with our friend's allotment. It means we get some of the harvest. Smile
