Corn Marigold

Add native British bee plants to your garden with our Corn Marigold seeds.

Corn Marigold (Chrysanthemum segetum) is originally thought to have been introduced into Britain during Neolithic times, but after 8 thousand years we certainly can claim it as our own!

During the 13th Century, Scottish farmers were fined a sheep for finding one plant in their corn because it can become a serious weed. However, don’t let that put you off. This is a gorgeous brightly yellow coloured annual that thrives in disturbed ground.

Just remember that wildflowers grown in your garden should be treated as normal bedding plants but they are just a little hardier. The corn marigold is an amazing plant for the Chalk Hill Blue butterfly. 

The Corn Marigold will flower from June to September adding colour and bees to your garden. Full care instructions can be found on the reverse of the packet.

Properties

There are approximately 300 seeds in the packet which are from cultivated stock. Please do not scatter any of the seeds into the countryside.

Where our wildflower seeds come from

These wildflower seeds come from Landlife Wildflowers. They are a charity, like Eden, who believe in taking action for a better environment by creating new opportunities for wildlife. They encourage people to go out and enjoy the wildlife and wildflowers and are attached to the National Wildflower Centre in Liverpool.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
