INSTRUCTIONS

After all danger of frost, sow in open ground well exposed. Cover with 1/4 inch of soil. For earlier bloom, start indoors in flats, about 6-8 weeks before last frost. Cover with 1/4 inch of soil. When plants are 2 inches high, thin or transplant. Before transplanting, harden off the seedling.

SUGGESTIONS

Plant some Marigolds in your vegetable garden to add color and repel nematodes.

Planting Instruction: 

Plant seed directly into the ground once danger of frost has passed or start indoors 4-6 weeks prior to last frost for earlier blooms. Seed starting indoors has never been easier with the wonderful selection of Jiffy products to make the process easy and successful!

Plant in full sun. These easy to grow annuals can grow and survive quite well even in poor soil.

Sow seeds 3 mm (1/8″) deep and 2.5 cm (1″) apart.

Seeds germinate in 5-8 days.

Low maintenance plants that do well in heat, rain and windy conditions.

Can survive short periods of dryer conditions but do not like to too dry for long.

Shorter varieties are better for windy locations.

Removed faded blooms (deadheading) to keep plants blooming continuously and looking fresh throughout the season.
