TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds directly into well-worked garden soil in full sun once all danger of frost is past. Space seeds several inches apart and cover about 1/4 inch deep. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 7 to 10 days. When seedlings are well established, thin them to a final spacing of 8 to 10 inches apart so these vigorous plants have room to grow and bloom. Extra thinned seedlings can be transplanted easily.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds several inches 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 8 to 10 inches apart once weather warms up after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions.

 

GROWING NOTES

These cheerful marigolds are quick to bloom, carefree and non-fussy. Their profusion of long lasting flowers and handsome blue-green foliage is perfect in any sunny spot and makes long blooming handsome borders. Feed and water regularly, especially if planting in containers. No need to pinch these self-branching productive plants or remove spent flowers for spectacular long bloom.
