How to grow
These incredibly easy to grow annuals can be directly seeded in the garden in mid to late May. Sow 6mm (1/4") deep, watering as necessary until germination occurs in roughly 7 days. Thin or transplant the seedlings when they are 5-8cm (2-3") tall. For earlier blooms start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6 weeks before planting out time. American & African types produce big, double blooms up to 15cm (6") across on tall, sturdy stemmed plants. French types are refined, compact plants with numerous, smaller blossoms. Marigolds are superb for edging, mass plantings and window boxes. The unusual scent of marigolds seem to repel insects and are often planted in vegetable gardens for this reason.
