Natural weeding !

This is Tagetes ‘Lucida’, a perennial which is also known as ‘Mexican Tarragon’ as it can be used as a substitute for Tarragon, having a slight ‘liquorish’ taste as well.

The flowers are pretty small, although sweet smelling, and come latish although going right through until Autumn.

It is quite bushy, growing to about 2’ tall (60 cm) and, as Asparagus Beetles and Bean Weevils really hate it, is an ideal companion plant.

It likes the sunshine, though will take a little shade. Well drained soil is normally best.

Sow the seeds when the temperature is around 20 degrees, which normally means mid to late spring [ but who knows these days !] Or give them a racing start by sowing them in our ‘Green Start’ sets in the Green house around March.

Each packet contains about a 100 seeds - but they keep for awhile
