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.

They look really pretty carol,
We grow them on our allotment and they do well there.
