    How to Plant Sparky 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.

Hardy, lovely marigolds !

I love these flowers. They germinate fast, grow quickly. I have planted them for spring flowers and again for fall flowers. Always hardy, bright and cheerful. I have also taken cuttings of them in mid summer they also grow well.
One of the hardiest, least -fussy flowers I have ever grown. Very dependable and colorful

So far great!

I have high hopes for these flowers. They were started under the grow light for 6 weeks, and I planted them last week. They are green and getting stronger and bigger.

I received these flowers faster than expected. The seeds were packaged well. I used them as wedding favors. Great product and great price! I will definitely use this company in the future if I need flower seeds.

Love those Marigolds

Bought these last year and put them between the rows of vegetables...come July wears my veggies?? I had a huge, overflowing garden of Marigolds. It was beautiful! This year I bought more only this time I left out the veggies and planted all Marigolds...they are up already within just a few days.
I followed the directions provided and they were easy to grow, great product and great service, will purchase more in the future.
Thank you, it is lots of fun.
