    How to Plant Crackerjack Mix Marigolds

    When to Plant Marigold Seeds

    Direct sow Marigold seeds after all threat of frost has passed - it's recommended that you wait approximately 1-2 weeks after the final frost date. Marigolds can also be sown indoors approximately 50-60 days before your final frost.

    Where to Plant Marigold Seeds

    Marigolds are tolerant of most types of soil, and enjoy warm, Full Sun conditions. Marigolds do best in rich, well draining soil that remains moist, though once established can be somewhat drought tolerant as well. If planted in cool, or moist locations, Marigolds are susceptible to powdery mildew.

    How to Plant Marigold Seeds

    Sow Marigold seeds directly onto the surface of the soil and firmly compress. Don't cover your seeds, as Marigolds require sunlight in order to germinate.

    How to Care for Marigolds

    Once planted, Marigolds require very little by way of care. Typically, you only need to water manually if the soil has gotten dry or dusty to the touch, or if it's been more than 2 weeks since any sort of natural rainfall. You can increase your blooms significantly by deadheading your spent blooms. Dried, spent blooms can be stored in a dry, cool location that gets minimal exposure to sunlight, and if planted, the seeds in the seed heads can produce additional marigolds the following year.

Great purchas5

I still have them in the greenhouse but they are bigger at this time than any that I have grown before. Hopefully they will do as good when I get them in the ground around the garden

Excellent

Great germination rate, excellent and durable plants and great blossoms. The seeds went into the ground late spring and since maturity have not stopped producing blossoms. Drought and heat tolerant. Eden Brothers delivers excellent products.

Very Happy With Blooms

This is a very light and fluffy seed that felt like cotton when I planted it. Has proven to be very prolific and is now one of my favorites in the garden. When planting African Daisy, make sure you follow the seeding guidelines.
