How to Grow

300 seed/gram. Seeds have had the wings removed for easier handling. These incredibly easy to grow annuals can be directly seeded in the garden in mid to late May. Sow 6 mm (1/4") deep, watering as necessary until germination occurs in roughly 7 days. Thin or transplant the seedlings to 25 cm (10") apart when they are 5-8 cm (2-3") tall. For earlier blooms start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6 weeks before planting out time. Keep at 20 C (71 F) for the 7 to 10 day germination period then grow on under lights at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site in the garden. The unusual scent of marigolds seem to repel insects and are often planted in vegetable gardens for this reason. We suggest removing spent flowers to help encourage continuous blooming.
