The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.This vivacious French Marigold creates a dramatic display. The deep red blooms are trimmed with a contrasting gold edge that picks out each and every petal. Marigold ‘Scarlet Sophie’ is an early flowering variety that will keep going all through the summer, with regular deadheading. Ideal for adding rich colour tones to beds, borders and patio pots, where it will attract plenty of pollinating insects to its nectar rich blooms. Height and spread: 30cm (12").
Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too.
