Adorn your garden all summer with the sparkle of their dainty flowers in our blend of bright paprika, rich gold and clear lemon yellow.

TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds directly into well-worked garden soil in full sun once all danger of frost is past. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart and cover about 1/4 inch deep. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 5 to 7 days.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of well-drained seed starting mix 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost date. Cover 1/4 inch deep, keep moist and provide a strong light source until ready to go outside. Transplant once weather warms up after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions. Thin or transplant 8 to 10 inches apart when seedlings are large

 

GROWING NOTES

These compact and cheerful antique marigolds are quick to bloom, carefree and non-fussy. Their profusion of dainty blooms and feathery aromatic foliage are perfect for planters in sunny spots, or edging garden beds. Feed and water regularly especially if planting in containers. Consider a second sowing before midsummer for a long season of appealing old-fashioned flowers.
