Planting and care

  • Marigolds need lots of sunshine.
  • Though they grow in almost any soil, marigolds thrive in moderately fertile, well-drained soil.
  • 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.
  • The seeds germinate easily, but watch out for damping off if you start them inside.
  • Separate seedlings when they are about 2 inches tall.
  • Plant them in flats of loose soil, or transplant them into the garden.
  • Space tall marigolds 2 to 3 feet apart; lower-growing ones about a foot apart.
  • If planting in containers, use a soil-based potting mix.
  • Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing.
  • If the spent blossoms are deadheaded, the plants will continue to bloom profusely.
  • When you water marigolds, allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, then water well, then repeat the process.
  • Do not water marigolds from overhead. Water at the base of the plant.
  • Do not fertilize marigolds. Too rich a diet stimulates lush foliage at the expense of flowers.
  • Marigolds bloom better and more profusely in poor soil.
  • The densely double flowerheads of the African marigolds tend to rot in wet weather.
