French marigolds.

French marigolds.

I have never seen marigolds as tall as these. They are half way up the height of the greenhouse. Definitely no whitefly this year and i'm pleased to say after the setback in the spring the toms. have picked up and are doing well.

These French marigolds i think only grew this tall because they were in my greenhouse on my allotment in full sun. You should see the ones in our garden, most of them were eaten and the others were only small.

The photo is deceiving Junna as the flower heads were almost as big as my palm. Nice to meet you Junna.
