French marigolds

CLERCLER Posts: 56
I have brought on some fab French marigolds from seed and they are very robust little plants in 3 inch pots. can I put out yet or should I repot into larger pots as they are starting to flower.?

    They're not frost-hardy - so unless you're sure you've had your last frosts don't risk it.  I know iit's a bit milder where you are than where we are, but it went down to -2C in my garden last night.  French Marigolds prefer it 10C and above - I'd pot on and keep them in the greenhouse/coldframe if I were you image
