Monster Marigolds!

My marigolds are looking tired and very past their best so I pulled them up.

I've used my 4 year old little monster for scale against one of them - I had 12 in all, anyone else have any monsters?! (flowers not Children!)





They took a bit of effort to put through the shedder before composting, didn't smell to good either!

    OMG I've never seen them so big, what are you feeding them on image


    I planted marigolds at 6pm one evening.  By 9am next morning the leaves were eaten down to the mid ribs and flowers covered in slug slime.  Never again.  So I take my hat off to you !

    Hi there are many types and the ones I have at my allotment give off a fantastic site and encourage the bees for pollination of all growing. Planted in April still going strong, dead heading every two days not much maintenance just let them go
