Lemon Drop French Marigold Seeds

Lemon Drop French Marigold Seeds

SKU: #1068

Every gardener will delight in these adorable, sunny yellow flowers on compact plants. 'Lemon Drop' adds a bright spot of color to the front of the bed, patio containers, and window boxes. In the vegetable garden, it takes up little room, and may reduce soil nematodes. French marigolds are edible, but with a very strong flavor similar to its pungent scent. Practically care-free and will self-sow if a few flowers are allowed to go to seed, providing welcome volunteers next season!
