Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - June 23, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba B4 BRANDON June Thats Life Lowly marigold is lowly no more Two recent gardening trends suit one of my favourite Gardening gurus tell us that hot colours are back in fashion after a peri od of time when and pas tels were in The second trend is that gardeners are choosing to plant more and more so versatile plants that flour ish both in containers and in the ground are todays flowers of Marigolds are well suited to both of these as they are equally at home in containers and in the flower and their hot colours and be How can marigolds be used in the landscape In they will perform well if given a sunny location and are fertilized regularly marigolds are heavy They should be kept moderate ly and it doesnt hurt to spray the foliage when you as occasionally marigolds will attacked by spider Marigolds come in a myriad of sizes and so an attractive container can be created by using taller plants in the centre and shorter ones around the Good candi dates for the centre would be members of the Inca or Jubilee the first getting 35 cen timetres in and the latter about 50 Although there are many varieties of dwarf French marigolds that could be used around the outside of the con a member of the Gem with its lacy foliage and tiny single blooms would be These plants will cascade over the edge of a contain er to create an attractive Marigold colours are all compatible because they come from the same side of the colour so containers can be a single such as or they can have a mixture of Some of the dwarf French type marigolds have single blooms that are quite both in the border and in Members of the Sophia with their 7 cm single are Queen Sophia is a red variety GARDENING By Albert Parsons breeders have devel oped several red marigolds and the results are very strik ing Most marigolds sold today are so they have that extra vigour and superiority that hybridisers have bred into the One other characteristic of these hybrid marigolds is that they are very uniform in growth This uniformity makes marigolds good choices for edging flower or for use as short hedges along walks or The plants will maintain a uniformity all season long that is amaz Marigolds combine well with other hot such as reds and I have some yellow Incas combined with red annual phlox and with red 1 also like to combine marigolds with the colours that are contrasting those colours that are on the opposite side of the colour wheel from the yellows and oranges namely the blues and I like yellow or orange marigolds planted next to dark purple or pale blue petunias Victoria salvia also looks good combined with its dark blue spikes contrasting with the yellow or orange blooms of the the spike form of the salvia flowers makes a good foil for the large round marigold Another use for marigolds comes from their reputation of repelling insect Im sure this is because of their rather pungent A few marigold plants scattered throughout an area of the garden or planted at its perimeter will help to keep pests away from other The lowly because of cur rent gardening has come back into From the metrehigh giants of the Coin series to the 15 cm there is surely a marigold suited to your particular Albert Parsons is a garden design and landscape consultant living in 81 years of age 80 concerts a year CANADIAN PRESS Dave
