    Default old english marigolds

    have lots of old english marigold seeds going spare, very good for bees and lacewings. apparently.
    seen lots of bees but not many lace wings.
    dont know how to do the secure passing of addresses thing so if somone could tell me that would be great.
    any ways there are lots and they are very pretty orange daisy lke flower, they have been flowereing all summer and are still going strong.
    so if anyone wants them let me know.

    Hi yoanbob

    Either ask people to PM you their address and you can pop the seeds to them, or you can PM them your address and they can send you a SEA. I did the later before, but ended up confused who had sent me their addresses etc, so will next time just ask poeople to PM me their address and then I know who got sent the seeds etc.

    Where can I get old English Marigold seeds from as I have been looking for these for years?
    These are excellent for keeping black-fly away from my allotment.
    Look forward to hearing from anyone who can help.
