TAGETES TENUIFOLIA 'TANGERINE GEM'
A very prolific and vigorous variety producing masses of dainty star-like, deep tangerine-orange flowers above soft, fern like leaves. Brilliant at the front of borders and perfect in pots, regular picking or deadheading will encourage further production of blooms throughout the summer.
Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place at a temperature of between 15-20°C (59-68°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Take care not to provide too high a temperature as this can prevent germination.
