Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
at least six hours of direct sunlight and do well with year-round warm to hot weather any soil type with moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Medium 20 to 30 degree C Marigolds thrive in poor soil and fertilizer often creates lush, rich foliage with few blooms.

Caring for African Marigold

  • 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.

Culinary use: The bright petals of signet marigolds add colour and a spicy tang to salads and other summer dishes. The flower petals are sometimes cooked with rice to impart the colour (but unfortunately not the flavour) of saffron.

Ornamental use: It is used as the edge plant or bed plant.

Medicinal use: One of the health benefits of marigolds is that it is used in the treatment of minor burns when used in the form of ointments or a tincture.
Health benefits and therapeutic uses of marigold flowers as well as the leaves of the marigold include it being beneficial in minimizing the number of tumours in the case of breast cancer as well as in the prevention of the development of new cancer cells.
One of the medicinal uses of marigolds is that it promotes the growth of both new blood vessels as well as new skin tissue and hence it is used in the healing of wounds such as burns, scrapes as well as irritated skin.

Note: Use only after consulting the specialist.
