In India marigold is one of the most commonly grown flowers and used extensively on religious and social functions in different forms. Flowers are sold in the market as loose or as garlands.

Common name: Zendu(Marathi)
Color: Marigolds are available in a range of gold, maroon, yellow and orange shades.
Bloom time: Spring, Summer, Fall
Height: African marigolds that reach heights of 2 to 3 feet
Difficulty level: Easy

Planting & Care
Sow them directly into the garden once the soil is warm, or start seeds indoors about a month to 6 weeks before the last spring-frost date.

Sunlight: Marigolds need lots of sunshine (at least six hours of direct sunlight) and do well with year round warm to hot weather

Soil: Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds thrive in moderately fertile, well-drained soil.

Water: Water marigolds the first 10 to 12 days after transplanting bedding plants into the garden.

Fertilizer: Avoid fertilizing the plants. Marigolds thrive in poor soil and fertilizer often creates lush, rich foliage with few blooms.

Care:
  • Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing.
  • When you water marigolds, allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, then water well, then repeat the process.
  • The densely double flower heads of the African marigolds tend to rot in wet weather.
  • Do not water marigolds from overhead.
  • Water at the base of the plant.


Special Feature:
Due to its variable height and colour marigold is especially use for decoration and included in landscape plans.
