    How to Plant Court Jester 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.

Painted Petals, Nice Shape

I like the lanky airy shape of this plant. And the petals are extremely interesting because the color contrast is so intense it looks like paint. Very pleased.

Seed Supplier Meets My Needs

prices and decrease the number of seeds in a packet. I have searched for one that has reasonable prices and includes enough seeds to meet my gardening needs, i.e., more than 5-10 seeds per pack. Eden Seeds has proven to be that company. Their stock is fresh and germinates at the rate you would expect fresh seeds to do so. One company sold me Taxi Tomato seeds that had eight seeds in the package and of which only two germinated....obviously old seed. This has become the norm in my experience. Eden Seeds is the exception and I will stick with them unless they later become like most of the others.
