Marigolds are durable and easy to grow if given warmth and moisture. They're happy indoors or out in a wide variety of settings. Sow outdoors after the last frost, or begin indoors 6-8 weeks prior. Plant 2-3 seeds together in moist, well-drained soil. Marigolds prefer full sun and can tolerate gardens prone to heat, drought and clay soils. Water well at the base of the plant, not from overhead, and allow soil to dry somewhat between waterings. Water more in high heat.

Blooming fantastic! Marigolds don't require deadheading; but pinching off dying blossoms will encourage new flowers.

Put marigolds to work in the garden as companion plants to help protect your tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and more from pests! Bonus... butterflies and bees love them too!

Wit & Wisdom: Marigolds can be dried for long-lasting floral arrangements. Strip foliage from perfect blossoms and hang them upside down. Read The Old Farmer's Almanac Marigold Growing Guide!
