    How to Plant Naughty Marietta 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.

Fun Little Plants

These marigolds do not disappoint. They sprout easily and quickly, and the plants are easy to keep going. Blooms show up quickly too and the flowers look very much like those in the photo shown. If you want to add some warm colors in area and don't want tall growth, these are perfect.

Great results!

A great choice for the strip of my garden that's next to the street - very hot and dry area. I sowed the seeds directly in average soil the first week of April I wasn't expecting such a show and not so quickly. 2 packets of seeds went a long way. Very pleased. I wish I could attach a photo to this review.
