Dyer's marigold seeds, Tagetes erecta; tall variety with big flowers, in orange or yellow

In stock


Marigold flowers dye fabrics and yarns yellow to orange, together with iron mordant they produce strong dark tones. This variety can bloom both bright orange and yellow.

This annual is best planted in a sunny location with well-drained, humus-rich soil. This marigold variant grows up to 80cm high and is beautiful in mixed plantings. Like smaller marigolds, they are good partners in mixed cultures and are effective against nematodes.

The large, double flowers don't just contain dye, they are also edible. Marigold is also traditionally used as a medicinal plant. You can harvest flowers from the plants several times, and if there are no early frosts, they will bloom well into late autumn.

The seeds were grown locally. I offer a kit with several dye plants.

Wenn du nur drei Tütchen bestellst, können die als einfacher Brief für 1,40€ verschickt werden – das geht nur, wenn du Vorkasse Überweisung als Zahlmethode wählst, und mir eine Notiz dazu schreibst in der Bestellung.
